About the Book

Ever since they first met as eleven-year-old youngsters, a brotherhood has been forged between Lefty Wolfson, an amnesiac Anglo Vietnam vet, and Jingles Blue Moon, a full-blooded Shoshone. For five years, Jingles has mistakenly believed that Lefty was killed in action—until he suddenly encounters him deep in the Wyoming wilderness, instigating a surprise reunion that will lead both of them down unexpected paths. After a night of bonding over a campfire, the brothers are surprised by the game warden who confronts the two men and arrests Jingles for allegedly poaching an elk. As Lefty teeters on the brink of falling into a darkness prompted by horrific memories of war, he realizes he needs to find a way to secure Jingles’ release from prison—just as he learns that the game warden is married to his high school sweetheart, Donna Williams. Now he must rely on tenacity, horses, friends, fists, guns, and his true love for help as he struggles to meet his challenges, reconcile with his past, and assure his legacy. In this western thriller inspired by true events, a Vietnam vet fights to help his Shoshone brother and find love amid the unforgiving Wyoming and Montana wilderness.

About the Author

From 1971 through 2000, author Duane Wiltse lived and guided summer horse pack trips and hunters from his three wilderness tent camps in the mountains along the east boundary of Yellowstone Park. During that time, Wiltse wrote articles for Grey’s Sporting Journal, Safari Magazine, and North American Hunter, also co-authoring two books – All About Elk and Guides’ Tales of Adventure. In 2005, his true story, “Gittin’ Western”, was published by iUniverse Inc. The book has been well-received by critics and readers alike, awarded the Editor’s Choice and Star designations. An excerpt from Western Horseman magazine review is typical of many others: “And, no, Gittin’ Western isn’t always a pleasant read. Life in the backcountry is never as kind as it might be to man or beast. But, Gittin’ Western is a genuine account. It would make a great action adventure movie.” Wolf depredation drove Wiltse out of his beloved Wyoming high country and to Bozeman, Montana in 2000. There he did voice-over radio commercials and TV ads for local businesses, wrote Gittin Western, Legacy and lives with his wife Jan on their small horse ranch.
