Cougar’s Crossing – Revised: Historical Novel from Real Life Adventure

“To read a book by Lillian Ross is to travel to another time and place with characters who quickly become family. ...Ross weaves a poignant drama of wounded love, jealousy and human emotion.” – Corrine McConchie, Vancouver librarian

A real-life adventure – and murder story – is recounted in Lillian Ross’ action-packed "Cougar’s Crossing – Revised: Historical Novel from Real Life Adventure."

“Could this be ‘his’ remains, we wondered? The hated man who killed our Aunt Florence in 1921? … The facts were overwhelming – more fascinating than we ever imagined. Now the story of 'Cougar’s Crossing' would have to be changed.”

The loud, brash, irreverent Cougar Wright who came from Wisconsin and the forests of Washington, swore like a trooper, and didn’t believe in a higher power than his own strength. But he loved his family and wanted them to join him in his struggle to tame the Canadian wilderness. His family’s dance with destiny in Alberta’s Northwest would shake his world and theirs, as it comes to life in this unforgettable tale with a mysterious twist. His story is filled with romance, adventure, and even a ghost!
