Trouble on the Tracks

Nancy Oswald has written a new adventure about Ruby May Oliver and her donkey Maude. In Trouble on the Tracks, Ruby must again face down that no-good, low-down Jake Hawker and keep her pa away from Miss Sternum, who just might be leading a double-life.

Exciting and funny, it's a very entertaining sequel to Rescue in Poverty Gulch.

Edward Wynkoop
Soldier and Indian Agent

                                 By Nancy Oswald

Edward 'Ned' Wynkoop came west to Denver in the very early days of that city. In the American Civil War he served as an officer and saw action at the Battle of Gloreita Pass. 

He may be best known for his role in the investigation and condemnation of Col. John Chivington following the Sand Creek Massacre. Wynkoop wasn't present at the attack and was appalled at the eye-witness accounts he heard during his investigation. In 1866, he became an Indian agent for the Southern Cheyennes and Arapaho, but resigned from that post following the Battle of Washita River. He died in Santa Fe in 1891.

Edward Wynkoop: Soldier and Indian Agent is Number Seventeen in the Now You Know Bio series. 

Nancy Oswald is the author of four historical novels: Nothing Here But Stones, Hard Face MoonRescue in Poverty Gulch
, and Trouble on the Tracks .
