“I like to write about the good old days, the days I know and the days I loved,” shares Alfred Dennis, author of nine novels, including his newest, “Yellowstone Brigade” (published by iUniverse).
A prolific storyteller of Western and frontier tales, Dennis one again delivers an action-packed story situated in the great outdoors. “Yellowstone Brigade” is a story of the rugged Rocky Mountains and the brave men and dangerous animals that inhabited them.
An excerpt from the book:
“The Rocky Mountains of the early 1830s are as wild and untamed as the men who dare venture into them. Trappers, hunters, men with adventurous spirits, and those known as mountain men ride undaunted and unafraid into the harsh domain of the hostile and war-like red man.
Pinto Stade and Jehu Wolf are two such men—strong, brave hunters who enter the tall mountains searching out the unexplored valleys and crystal clear lakes that hold the treasure they seek. It’s not gold; it’s something much more valuable to these men. Furs—beaver, martin, fox, and other critters—are what they come for, and it’s these furs that will bring cash money at rendezvous.”
Dennis, who grew up in the rugged Oklahoma Mountains milking cows and hauling cream cans off the treacherous trails and across swollen rivers, imbues his tales with authenticity, faithfully describing the realities of living in conjunction with nature.
