Homer, AK Author Publishes New Book
The Long Dusty Trail, a new book by Mel Adkins, has been released by RoseDog Books.

As the great migration of men and cattle headed west to new untamed lands in the 1880s, one man stood tall. Jimmy Highsaw was honest as the day is long; but cross him and you would pay for it. Leaving his job as trail scout for John Chisum, Jim rode to Durango to visit his sister, and fell headlong into a plot to bring a herd of the new breed of Hereford cattle from Kansas City to Durango, Colorado. A long dusty trail filled with romance, gunsmoke, hardship and death soon followed.
