“Sometimes frightening, sometimes funny, but always genuine and fascinating, Gittin’ Western opens a window into a lifestyle most of us have dreamed about but few dared to pursue. Heartily recommended.”
—Kathy Tyers, best-selling author of Firebird Trilogy
“Duane tells an engaging story in an authentic voice. Along the way you’ll laugh, be surprised, and feel both joy and sorrow. You’ll come to know the West, the embrace of its open spaces, and the dream that pulls him and his family in a fresh and vivid way.”
—Jenna Caplette, writing coach—www.justwrite.com
At the age of thirty-five, author Duane Wiltse “pushed all his chips into the pot” and left Michigan to pursue his goal of establishing a big game hunting business. Through forest fires, bear attacks, and runaway horses and mules—not to mention the elusive trophy bull elk, government bureaucracy, helpful New Mexico Indians, more than a few Tennessee rednecks, and the loss of his wife, Wiltse learns first-hand lessons of life and death.
Wiltse’s story reveals the complexities of a maturing man, father, and husband struggling to achieve a dream.
