Art: Buffalo Soldiers at Yosemite

Posted on Updated on

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.

Yosemite National Park - California

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.

    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 🙂
