Utah novelist releases ‘Wyoming Jack’

UTAH – Readers who love Westerns will thrill to the chase of a cattle drive in the action-packed novel “Wyoming Jack.”

The cattle drive encounters a wild mustang stampede, an early spring blizzard, a cougar attack, a saloon girl who attacks with a knife, and much more.

After competing in The Cheyenne Days celebration, Leland Martin Rich, known as Wyoming Jack, and his three brothers accept a job driving a herd of cattle 115 miles from the small Wyoming town of Deaver to Thermopolis, Wyoming.

Their adventures begin when Jack learns that two of his wranglers are convicted felons. At Lobo Pass, they hear the first wolf cry. A dying calf is killed to use as bait to lure in the wolves, and in less than the time it took for the plan to start, it was over. Nine wolves lay dead, but one of their men had also been killed.

“We are thrilled to announce the release of this stunning Western that takes readers back to the Old West,” said Robert Fletcher, CEO of Strategic Book Publishing and Rights Agency.
