New Arrival

The Hawksbill Crag
Richard O. Snelson

Author: Missouri author, Richard O. Snelson has roots that are set deeply in the Crawford county area he writes about. The Snelson-Brinker cabin, built in 1834, still stands proudly in the Ozark Mountains located near Meramec Springs. Snelson was intrigued when he learned of the 1838 hanging of a 14-year-old slave girl who once lived there. Hence, The Hawksbill Crag adventure novel was born. He has also written a light-hearted novel about the country music and outdoor wonderland around Branson, and for aviation publications. Richard and his wife, RoxAnne, enjoy living on a ranch with their horses, while he continues to pen stories of the Ozark area he loves. Website:

Book: In 1865, Union Army Captain Nelson Paintier returns under military orders to his boyhood home, bushwhacker ravaged southern Missouri. His orders are to pardon or kill the raiders riding there under the black flag of "Give No Quarter." Caught up in a bushwhacker chase, he must help them or lose the schoolteacher love of his life. She alone understands his guilt for causing the death of a fourteen year old slave girl years before. Because of their love, his dedication to duty, and his desire to correct his past sins, they ride a path that leads them straight towards death on the sheer edges of the Hawksbill Crag. The Hawksbill Crag is now available from Amazon.com and http://www.bbotw.com/.
