New, gently used & out-of-print books for readers of all ages.

February 7, 2020

Join us on Friday, February 7 at 7:00 for a presentation by local historian Jerry Keenan, author of West of Green River.
The reading will be followed by an author reception.

Was Benjamin L. E. Bonneville, captain of the U.S. Army, granted a two-year leave to try his hand as a fur trader in the Rocky Mountain West? Or did his superiors have ulterior motives, tasking Bonneville to spy on the British in the Pacific Northwest? The Bonneville expedition began in Missouri and made its way to the Oregon country, territory at the time shared through mutual agreement by the U.S. and Great Britain. Yet the British presence there caused grave concerns about the geographic boundaries of our nation. This fictional account of the Bonneville expedition brings to life the difficult trek facing Bonneville and his men in their encounters with Native Americans and their struggles against the harsh elements on their westward journey to Oregon.

Retired from the book publishing industry, Longmont author Jerry Keenan writes about the people, places and events that make up the tableau of Western History. His publications include A Life of Yellowstone Kelly, The Great Sioux Uprising: Rebellion on the Plains, Encyclopedia of American Indian Wars, and The Wagon Box Fight: An Episode of Red Cloud's War.
