Peter Bowen lives in Montana, where he is a cowboy, hunting and fishing guide, folksinger, poet, essayist, and novelist. He is the author of the historical western Yellowstone Kelly series and the Gabriel Du Pré mysteries, about a Montana lawman.

About the Books: The Yellowstone Kelly novels take place in the Wild West of the 1870s. Reminiscent of Larry McMurty’s westerns, they feature a hilarious and sly witted scout whose adventures range from Buffalo hunts in the Zulu War to joining the Rough Riders with Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.

Fans and critics alike have praised Bowen’s intelligent, evocative, and lyrical writing. The New York Times wrote, “Riding with Du Pré is some kind of enchantment… Bowen writes mysteries that are truly mysterious,” and Publishers Weekly called the Yellowstone Kelly series, “Very, very funny.”

Here’s a link to his author spotlight and video. I’m linking to Youtube as well for the same short video introducing him. I think I will certainly be checking out his work soon.
