About The Author

I am a landscape painter by trade and my travels across the American West, my visual depictions of the land through colour and space have inspired and informed many of the descriptive passages of this book. Also novels such Cormac McCarthy’s masterpiece, Blood Meridian, and Cold Mountain by Charles Frazier have been a profound stylistic influence in the writing of this story.
