Lady Long Rider Book Tour

Slide-Show Presentation & Book Signing

My Lady Long Rider Book Tour begins mid-October, 2018. What follows is a 7-month tour starting in Montana, winding through out the United States, and ending April 2019 on the east coast in Fort Edward, New York. There is no charge for my talks. Autographed books will be available at each presentation and on my online store at

I will be traveling with truck and trailer this time with my two horses, Montana Spirit and Liska Pearl. I would like to highlight the importance of our library systems by scheduling talks at mostly local libraries. If you are interested in hosting a slideshow presentation/book-signing or would like to help with the book tour in any way please contact me at or via Farcountry Press, or call 1-800-821-3874
