About the Author

Dave Lloyd is a 4th generation Montanan whose great-grandmother came up the Yellowstone on a steamboat to the head-of-track outside Miles City. She knew and told her family stories of the men and the women who lived at the time. Dave grew up listening to her and his grand-mother, the first white baby born in the county, as they reminisced of that era's rowdy times.
As a young man, Dave was a working cowboy and became assistant ranch-manager on one of the largest ranches in the state. Western Cattle Company, with hundreds of sections of land and cattle numbering in the thousands. Life on the ranch in the cold Montana winters convinced him to get a college education, after which he worked as a teacher, then principal, then superintendent in various high schools.
Lloyd researches his books, and makes them historically accurate, with their characters true to the times. Gun enthusiasts will enjoy reading about the Sharps, Winchester rifles and other firearms used by the people in Lloyd's saga.
He lives in Helena, Montana with his wife, Donna and continues to write of the early beginnings of the state he loves.

Lloyd really has a grasp of the Old West, and Montana history...having been raised on a small ranch on the Yellowstone River, this novel brought it to life--what it must have bee like in the "bad old days". I will definitely check out Lloyd's other novels, as he seems to be a prolific writer who meticulously researches his subjects down to the correct pistol or rifle for the era, and what is happening in the United States during the time his characters lived. The fight scenes are very active, the characters interesting.
