Please consider ABERCROMBIE TRAIL for your book club-I'd welcome a chance to attend your group, meet your members and do a personal signing. Contact me at simar@tds.net for more information. On June 19th I attended my first book event at Sister Wolf Books at Dorset. Thank you to all of you who stopped to chat. I've just started lining up summer book signings and would greatly appreciate suggestions for additional appearances. Please check back for updates.


"Abercrombie Trail, Candace Simar's first-rate debut novel, beautifully captures the wild unpredictability of nineteenth-century immigrant life out on the Great Plains." Diana Ossana is an American Academy Award-winning writer who has collaborated on writing screenplays, teleplays, and novels with Pulitzer Prize-winning author Larry McMurtry.
Diana and Larry received the Academy Award for Best Adapted Screenplay for Brokeback Mountain.


"Endlessly fascinating...The ultimate 'I was there' book. I have read many books about Scandinavians coming to America in the turbulent 1860s, but thanks to author Candace Simar, this is the first time I was ever transported from my easy chair right into the book to experience it with them. The images of courage, cruelty, intolerance, discovery, and simple pleasures have stayed with me. This is one book I won't forget."
Jack Koblas author of Let Them Eat Grass Trilogy
