Salmon River Kid
Samuel Chambers must eke out a living on the Salmon River during a brutal winter while his heart is torn between a ranch-hand girl and returning to his life as a miner in the high country.
Salmon River Kid is the continuing saga of Samuel Chambers as he falls in love and comes of age in a hostile world in 1872 Idaho Territory. The book reveals life on the Salmon River from Slate Creek to Warrens during the years preceding the Nez Perce War of 1877.
Salmon River Kid is a coming-of-age adventure involving thirteen-year-old Samuel Chambers. This sequel to Sojourner of Warren’s Camp deals with survival, coming-of-age, and mixed cultures. It is written at a cross-over level between teenager and adult and is quite suitable for older teens. It is rich in Chinese miners, Nez Perce history, outlaws, and 19th Century ranching and mining. It is based on the geography and history of Central Idaho, particularly Slate Creek and the Main Salmon River up to French Creek and up to Burgdorf and Warren. Salmon River Kid was awarded a gold medal for best historical fiction Next Generation Independent Book Awards. It was also awarded Editor’s Choice by iUniverse as well as their Star designation.
Salmon River Kid is the fourth novel in a planned series that concludes with the Sheepeater Indian War of 1879. All the novels in the series can stand alone since adequate backstory is given in each. All illustrations are the author’s work. The cover painting depicts the upper headwaters of the Salmon River.

Seeking Two Elks Fighting: Erik Larson, Sheepeater Indian Series
ISBN: SOFT COVER 9781663212672
Torn between his white man world and his Sheepeater Indian world, Erik Larson faces rising evil which threatens to destroy both worlds.
This is predominately Erik’s continuing story and is the fifth novel in my Sheepeater Indian Series. (All can stand alone since I give adequate background in each.) Erik Larson travels across southern Idaho Territory and up into Montana Territory and then across the Clearwater country and back through the Salmon River country (Slate Creek) and on back to see his sister Katrine. After seeking a second vision, Erik is confused to what his life’s path should be. During most of his travels, he is plagued by evil and attempts to reconcile his beliefs and actions, particularly when he rides with a young man whom he met early on and who is on a mission to exact revenge. I have laced the story with the historical events of the region through which Erik travels. The forthcoming book will address the rising conflict between settlers, the Native Americans (Nez Perce` War and Bannock War) and the Chinese. It will lead up to the Sheepeater Campaign.
The book is written at a cross-over level. Although it deals with some adult themes, including coming-of-age and some romance, the language and descriptions are written at an acceptable level for older teens. The cover illustration is taken from my painting of Jughandle Mountain on the east side of Long Valley in Idaho. I have also illustrated the novel with eleven pen and ink illustrations which are based on themes in the book. My pen and ink maps are based on USGS maps and show the main trails and settlements of the period. I’ve indicated the existing trails through the region in Erik’s time, including the Nez Percé Trail. This was the only route east and west through this region and, ironically, was missed by Lewis and Clark, who went north over Lolo Pass.
Sheepeater: To Cry For A Vision
