Read full description of the books:
"Article I: There shall be a firm and perpetual peace between the Sioux and Chippewas; between the Sioux and the confederated tribes of Sacs and Foxes; and between the Ioways and the Sioux."
On August 19, 1825, in a place called Prairie du Chien, Michigan Territory, under the guise of concern but wrapped in a cloak of deceit, the federal government began a series of treaties with the Sioux Nation that would lead to the outbreak of the Sioux Wars, and the end of a way of life. In 1862 with the beginnings of the Sioux Wars in the Minnesota River Valley, a mixed blood named Anton McAllister balances on the razor thin line separating corrupt Indian agents, unscrupulous fur traders, the U.S. Army, and powerful chiefs from the Chippewa and Dakota nations. When his best friend is falsely accused of war crimes and sentenced to die, Anton finds himself in a race to save his friend from the gallows.

Read information about the authorMy kid days set me up for a lifetime of joy. Great parents, wonderful environment, firm entrenchment in the middle class, and the fortuitous impact of being a child in the 1950s all combined to mold my future and I am eternally grateful.
I was born in Minneapolis, Minnesota, grew up in Mound, and now makes my home in Prior Lake. Married since 1965, we have two children and four granddaughters.
I retired from Qwest Communications in 2008. Prior to retirement I took writing classes at the University of Michigan and I have been a member of The Loft Literary Center, Minneapolis, since 2003. North Star Press of St. Cloud released my historical novel about the Minnesota Dakota War of 1862, “THE THIRTY-NINTH MAN,” in June 2013.
I have completed a fantasy chapter book for seven to twelve year-old readers, and have a book of short stories in process. I've had poetry included in two annual stage productions by the Bloomington Arts Council, at The Black Box Theatre in Bloomington, Minnesota, and I've had poems included in multiple anthologies.
My memoir, in addition to telling stories from my childhood in the Village of Island Park (Mound) includes stories from my time in Turkey with the US Navy during the Cuban missile crisis, and of the experience of working under contract with NASA in Tananarive, Madagascar, during the glory years of ‘69 & ‘70.
My original radio play "The Stink Bomb" was recorded during a live performance in the Lakes Area Theatre on June 14, 2013, and released to ten radio stations across the state. The play can be heard online by accessing The Lakes Area Theatre (Alexandria, MN) website, clicking on Past Programs and selecting July 8 Stink Bomb.
I am the the holder of three U.S. patents aligned with the sport of archery.
In addition to bible study, some of my favorite pastimes involve hunting, camping, canoeing, and travel. I’ve bow hunted the big timber from California to New Hampshire and the croplands between; canoed the BWCA, the Manistee, and the Merrimac; snorkeled in the Sea of Marmara, tracked satellites in Tananarive, Madagascar, and I can start a campfire after five days of steady rain.
