From the Author
This heroine was a blast to write. She arrives by steamer with enough luggage to kill three mules. Despite her rigorous preparations, Eleanor Hart is unprepared for the Yellowstone. She discovers her inner strength along the way, but really would prefer a comfortable bed and a personal chef. She is all frills and fashion, while he is all Spartan economy and utility. Writing about such polar opposites was great fun and added an element of humor that kept me laughing.
I came up with this idea while doing some research. I discovered that James Audubon, famous for his rendering of North American birds, also made a trip up the Yellowstone River to render Western Wildlife. This got me thinking about the artists there in the midst of trappers, scouts and native tribes. A fish out of water story was too irresistible.
