This morning I was thrilled to be interviewed by Scott Hall for his segment, Our History, on KAXE, Northern Community Radio. Scott and I discussed the book at length for almost 20 minutes, with Scott asking some great questions about how I developed some of the characters in the book and about the rugged life they led in those early days in Mountain Iron. Scott praised the book for it’s depiction of the life of those early Rangers and told his listeners, “I highly recommend you read this book.”
