1945. Ranger Will McManis patrols an empty Upper Geyser Basin in Yellowstone, V-J day and his mother's death on his mind. His grandson, five-year-old Chuck, will leave soon, too, off to faraway Denver, a brand-new life, leaving a huge hole. Will thinks he knows all kinds of change. But out among the geysers with Chuck, something happens to dwarf it all, and nothing will ever be the same again.
About the Author
"A GRAND yarn you can't put down." Janet Chapple, author of Yellowstone Treasures, on Repeating History.
"The details paint a word picture so vivid that readers can see the story play out in their minds."
Steve Dunkelberger, Tacoma Weekly, on True Gold.
I am fascinated by the possibilities of what if. The memories of place that some people call ghosts, the möbius effect of time travel. You won't find vampires or werewolves in my books, I'm afraid. Or horror. I am more interested in the potential effects of the fantastic on normal folks, and in inserting it into well-researched historical events, populated mostly by people who really lived.
I'm also an avid student of the road, and Cross-Country will not be my last travel adventure book.
