Fairbanks, AR, July 12, 2012 --(PR.com
)-- Veteran author Scotty V. Casper announced today the release of his fifth novel, Massacre at Bridal Veil Falls, published by Outskirts Press. Casper’s Western tale pits two teenagers, bent on revenge, against the outlaws who massacred their entire Mormon wagon train party in an action packed odyssey across the rough and tumble world of 1868 Utah.
Lane Tandy and Shyann Richardson are two immigrant teenagers who are suddenly thrown together after somehow surviving the massacre of their Mormon immigrant wagon train. They decide, against all odds, to pursue the outlaws responsible for their parents’ deaths and their improbable quest for revenge strengthens them immeasurably and draws them together.
They end up not only rekindling their will to survive after such a devastating loss, but they also find love as they continue their young lives in this harsh, frontier world.
Scotty Casper was born and raised in Utah and so brings a vibrant reality to his descriptions of the rough land Lane and Shyann must traverse. He is also a Mormon and is able to provide a depth to that theme as it runs through this nineteenth century tale. His abilities for the novel’s strong characterization he attributes to a life long admiration for Dickens as well as for the Westerns of Zane Grey, Louis L’Amour and Max Brand which he has continually kept his nose in over the years.
The following short excerpt gives a taste of the rapid pace and intriguing characters of Casper’s strong narrative:
“Early the next morning something poked Lane in the ribs as he dozed. He opened his eyes and a Ute Indian with a face that looked like it had been ridden over by a horse was poking him with a spear.”
