ABOUT THE AUTHOR
D. A. Galloway
Burning Ground is part autobiographical, part historical, and part fiction. The story was inspired by two memorable summers of my youth.
As a teenager, I worked on a fruit farm in Pennsylvania. It is here I met Redfield, a Crow Indian who lived a simple life but had a profound effect on the way I saw the world and people around me.
As a young man, I spent a summer in Yellowstone National Park in the late 1970’s giving guided tours on Yellowstone Lake. When I was not working, my days were spent exploring all corners of that magnificent land, often in the backcountry. My love for our nation’s first national park is rooted in that wonderful experience.
I am humbled and gratified my debut novel was applauded by historians and appreciated by lovers of historical fiction stories set in American West.
In the Frontier Traveler series, Graham Davidson travels back in time to the American West in the 1870s. His adventures take him through Yellowstone before it was a national park (Burning Ground: Book 1). His journey continues in Montana and the Little Bighorn Valley at the height of the Indian Wars (Fatal Ground: Book 2). Graham is caught up in the flight of the Nez Perce from eastern Oregon into Yellowstone and Montana in 1877 (Bitter Ground: Book 3).
I enjoy reading about adventurers and explorers, traveling internationally, riding a recumbent tandem bike, and spending time with my grandchildren.
