My granddaughter was eager to model my vintage 19th century dress for these pictures. When we were finished, she was more than ready to take it off. "It's not comfy," she said. Notice the light gray slit. It has pockets.

PRIVATE TREATY--a historical romance--was actually the first book I wrote, but I didn't publish it until Harlequin Historicals debuted. It was one of two launch titles in the first month. Recently I revised it so extensively that we had to pull a new copyright, and Bell Bridge Books published it with this lovely new cover. Available in paperback and e-book.

I love what this author did to make his small SD ranch viable, humane, and green. He works with his Lakota neighbors and honors life that is truly native to the Great Plains. A reminder that, in Thoreau's words: "in Wildness is the preservation of the World."
