Yorkshire Author Aims at Western Readers
Today January 26th 2011, Boson Books of Raleigh, North Carolina USA announces the release of the next two titles of their exclusive six ebook contract with the Yorkshire author Chris Scott Wilson to be distributed world-wide. Both rooted in the old West, The Quantro Story is a hard tale of revenge, while in The Fight at Hueco Tanks a band of renegade Apaches break out of the San Carlos Reservation, determined to preserve their way of life. The US cavalry has other ideas.
Well-known western author Randy D. Smith writes of The Fight At Hueco Tanks, “Wilson credibly depicts the mind-set, fears, and prejudices of both the white and Native American cultures during the turbulent Apache wars era of the 19th Century,” and adds, “If you want to read an intriguing story of the West with a touch of realism and a bunch of adventure, The Fight at Hueco Tanks is well worth your time.” Reviewer Mary Williams states more simply, “The author is a novelist and he knows how to tell a story...”
Chris Scott Wilson, who lives on the North Yorkshire coast, reveals. “I’ve been out to what was the frontier, and it took tough, resilient men and women , who did whatever they had to in order to survive, to carve out a life and build a future for their children. It can be a harsh and unforgiving land out there in the west.”
A spokesman for Boson Publishers said, “We believe Westerns have been much neglected of late, and unlike any other form of American fiction, they vividly portray the hardships and challenges settlers faced and conquered in founding America. They are stories which deserve to be told.”
The Fight at Hueco Tanks & The Quantro Story by Chris Scott Wilson are available now from Amazon and other leading on-line retailers. To read sample chapters, please visit Boson Books website : http://www.cmonline.com/boson/ then choose Fiction, Westerns
