Art: Buffalo Soldiers at Yosemite
My next ‘Buffalo Soldier‘ novel will be about the Buffalo Soldiers at Yosemite; only, instead of being about them patrolling Yosemite after it was designated a national park, this will be a fictionalized story of Ben Carter and his men escorting the naturalists who mapped the place prior to the designation.
Given that the cavalry often accompanied railroad and other survey teams, this is well within the realm of possibility. At any rate, below are two paintings – or actually, two versions of the same painting – that I’m considering for the cover. Comments welcome.

Yosemite is one of my most favorite places and I live very near by. Would love to read this book.

Sounds Like a BEST SELLER to me! I actually seen a documentary about Yosemite, and Shelton Johnson was In it, an he explained the story a little about the Buffalo Soldiers and that time period. It was really interesting. Looking forward to it CR!! Would love to do a Nice Book Spot light for you on my Writers/Book Blog when it comes out, so keep me posted 🙂
