I made a very happy discovery today. My late grandmother, Elaine Nielsen’s book, “A Century on the Trail: Ogallala” is back in print from Bison Books. My wife showed it to me when we were at Barnes and Nobles. I recall my aunt saying something about the University of Nebraska Press wanting to make a trade paperback of it, but I didn’t know it was this far along. If you’re interested in reading a well-crafted retelling of frontier life in west Nebraska, you will enjoy this book. The ISBN is 978-0-8032-3447-5 if you’re interested in tracking it down. More than a decade after passing away, Elaine Nielsen continues to be a positive influence on me as a grandson and a writer. When Repenter gets published, it’s getting dedicated to her.
