Moccasin Tracks

Moccasin Tcks CoverMomentous change continues, igniting further greed and compassion, courage and treachery, rugged independence, torrid passions and fierce loyalties. The discovery of gold in California and the meeting of the tracks of the Burlington Northern Railroad from the east and Union Pacific from the west in 1869, underpin the rise of the robber-barons, cattle empires and commerce, drawing hundreds of thousands to the Rockies and beyond.

A tidal wave of hopeful souls follows on the trail of the strong men and women of Maps of Fate. Throngs of those displaced by the devastation of the Civil War add to the torrent of humanity flowing west. In the second, third, and fourth novels of the Maps of Fate Era: Uncompahgre, Moccasin Tracks, and The Footsteps), the first Threads West generation born in the remote and sparsely settled west begins to mature and contend with this cauldron of events, their lives unsettled by personal tragedies, triumphs, loves and loss. Colorado, Wyoming, Utah and Montana evolve into separate and distinct territories, and then achieve statehood. Law and order struggles as outlaws linger on the outer edges and range wars erupt between the landowners and the landless, sheep herders, cattlemen and sod busters. The clash of cultures, creeds and beliefs, and bitter rivalries over the control of scarce water resources, fuels further violence and cruelty.

The decades of the Maps of Fate era novels of Threads West book series become the crucible of the American spirit. This violent but magical period in American history will affect forever the souls of generations, the building of the heart of the nation, destiny of a people, and the relentless energy and beauty of the western landscape. This is our story.

Pre-Order the Book on the Dot Coms? NO! Reserve Your Copies Right Here From the Publisher? YES!

And here’s why:

Get them faster than anywhere else, shipping included, no worries about stock being sold out, and prices as good (better for multiple copies!) as you can find anywhere!

Most folks think pre-ordering on one of the big dot coms somehow saves money and speeds the book being in their hands – a kind of head start, or so they believe. Not so!

Here’s the truth that few in the book industry will share with you:

  • The publisher always has the books before anyone else.
  • Unlike pre-ordering, where a reader has to part with their money for a product months away, the publisher charges nothing for your reservation.
  • You will have notices and announcements long before the rest of the reading public, and the physical book, days – perhaps weeks – ahead of those with dot com pre-orders!
  • When you pre-order on a dot com you have in effect given them an interest free loan. The dot coms don’t even pay for their books until thirty to ninety days after they finally ship it to you.
  • Did you know that many of the dot coms, if they have a limited supply of books, fill more current orders placed before filling pre-orders? True – after all, if you pre-ordered, they already have your money so what’s the rush? This is called LIFO, or last in, first out.
  • The publishers strictly follow FIFO – first in, first out – a big difference, when books sell out and – and, as you may have noticed, Threads West books seem to always sell out on the dot coms, sometimes repeatedly, during and after a release!
  • When you contact the publisher, you get an individual answer from a real person, not some “no-reply robot” response.

Hmmmmm! No upfront cost, equal or lower prices, shipping included, information long before the rest of the planet, personalized real person responses, and the book in your hands before anyone ordering from any dot com – and no horse panky with filling later orders first. The books are out the door the same day the printer’s truck unloads in the exact same sequence as the orders were made!
