  1. Have you read A.S. Peterson's The Fiddler's Gun? I highly recommend it! The sequel, The Fiddler's Green just released and I am so excited to read it!

  2. No, I've never read this book, but I will check it out. Thanks for the recommendation!

  3. How about "Partners" or "Homesteader". There's a link to both on my blog. Having followed the link there's info on what they are about. They are 1866 and 1886 respectively.

  4. Hey, Dave! Thanks for your suggestions. It's great meeting another Canadian author.
