More About the Author

James Hufferd (born in Iowa, 1946), attended public schools and grew up in a small farming environment. He earned a Bachelor's degree in History at Iowa State University, a Master's in International Studies at University of Wyoming, and a Ph.D. in Geography at University of Minnesota (1979). He has taught in elementary schools (including an isolated one-room rural school in eastern Nevada) and numerous universities, and has traveled and researched in 19 countries, including the Canadian Eastern and High Arctic and various parts of Brazil. Fluent in Portuguese, James Hufferd was twice a Research Associate in Residence at Federal University of Rio de Janeiro.

In addition to "The Bells of Autumn," a Western historical novel, (please click "See all books" below, next to my name, to access this book) James Hufferd has written and published (2005) in two volumes the first narrative history of Brazil published in English since 1819, entitled "Cruzeiro do Sul, A History of Brazil's Half-Millennium."

His 2011 historical novel, "The Bells of Autumn," is an exploration of white-Indian relations in the American West as well as a portrayal of the early legacy of a section of the northern Great Plains.

James Hufferd is also the author of "The Majoritarian Solution," a very early assessment of American corporatism (1985), "Homeland: A Comedy," a satiric novel to be available in December, 2011, and "Troublesome Country," a historical/political essay to be published in late winter, 2012. He is particularly interested in the political economy and history of the U.S. and the international/global New World Order, and is currently completing a novel entitled "Evil Vanquished! The Extraordinary Rendition of the Bilderberg."

Format: Kindle Edition
Much more than a typical Western, The Bells of Autumn delivers mordant wit along with an unsparing glimpse of the birth pangs of a territory only just coming under the "civilizing" influence of modernity. A fast-paced, satisfying read that deftly handles topics ranging from racial tensions and the subjugation of the Sioux to the comical antics of its diverse cast of characters.

The historical detail was very accurate down to smallest details. The insight into life in the west in the last 1800's was excellent. It was a history lesson that was fascinating, enjoyable and so painless. You didn't realize you were learning. The characters too were real. With the violence we see today, we can see that today's bad men existed in yesterday's bad men. It made the events of the past seem (although just as bad) not impossible because they were perpetrated by characters who had dimension and were understandable by today's readers. All in all an interesting, enjoyable, and enlightening book.
