We have had the honor of reviewing top novels and narrative non-fiction written by outstanding authors whose stories enlighten, remind, empathize, and creates a better understanding with those who have served in the armed forces.
Presenting the Laramie Hall of Fame of Western and American fiction! Also why we named them the Laramie Book Awards along with interesting facts about Laramie, Wyoming, and its historical icons. An interesting read that also honors the Laramie Book Awards winners!
From the daily adventures of the men, to an edge-of-your-seat, blow-by-blow account of the Battle of Little Big Horn, (aka Custer’s Last Stand), the author combines his wonderful talent for storytelling with in-depth historical research, placing the reader right beside these men in their final days.
Heart-warming and at times hilarious Western adventures are juxtaposed with gritty and emotionally wrenching moments such as Custer’s 1868 attack on Chief Black Kettle’s Cheyenne camp at Washita.
Long’s gifted ear for the true vernacular of the time and his detailed descriptions of the Old West place the reader right in the middle of the action on a journey to the Civil War era and to the far-flung outposts of the Old West.
