All In a Day's Ride
Life Along Horse Creek in the Wyoming Range, An Enduring Legacy
Just as he did in his two earlier narrative histories, Hard and Noble Lives and The State of Equality in the Equality State, Paul Jensen again brings history and its characters to life, this time along Horse Creek, near Daniel, Wyoming. From the mountain men of the 1830s to the homesteaders of the twentieth century, Horse Creek served as a crossroads of Western exploration and expansion. The stickers, who beat the odds by surviving and succeeding, built their ranches and the surrounding communities. Paul and his family live along Horse Creek. He is committed to its history and preservation
“Paul Jensen continues his chronicles of the men and women whose vision and sacrifices built the state of Wyoming. His tales will be rewarding and enlightening both to Westerners and to those who know the state.” —Jim Fallows, National Correspondent for The Atlantic Monthly and acclaimed author
“Every Western state has a Horse Creek. But only one has a Paul Jensen to capture the rich history and romance of a part of the country that helps illuminate the American character.”—Jonathan Alter, author of The Promise: President Obama, Year One and The Defining Moment: FDR’s Hundred Days and the Triumph of Home.
