Two strong-willed sisters...barely holding on to their dreams despite suffering unimaginable hardships and the loss of their mother in the California Gold Fields and now pulling their sick father in a Mormon handcart ever higher into Utah’s the wild and dangerous Wasatch Mountains.

Rebecca...beauty is her curse but also her promise. A gifted healer, she will soon learn that in the American West a medicine woman is scorned by the all-male medical profession.

Katie...every bit as strong and defiant as her older sister and determined never to put her fate in the hands of any man, but instead to build a Wyoming sheep ranching empire in Wyoming’s magnificent Wind River Country.

Amos...a powerful polygamist whose hunger for power is eclipsed only by his lust for Rebecca. He vows to make her his fifth and most prized wife.

Bryce...handsome, dangerous and a man who has lost his first love to a powerful and ruthless polygamist and vows deadly revenge...until he meets Rebecca.

Captain Devlin Woodson II...a brilliant, dashing but tortured Army doctor whose battlefield decision cost sixty-three lives in the Civil War...and whose only purpose for living is to save that many soldiers at the lonely frontier outpost called Fort Bridger.

Washaki...greatest of the Shoshone chiefs, a man too wise to let his people die needlessly...he will win them the great Wind River Reservation...and keep it forever for his people.

Intertwined with the epic building of the Transcontinental Railroad the true story of the courageous Wyoming women who fought for woman’s suffrage and first won the right to vote, SISTERS of the WYOMING MOUNTAINS: Book I and its exciting sequel, SISTERS of the WYOMING PLAINS: Book II are never to be forgotten sagas written by multiple and national award-winning author, Gary McCarthy.

About the Author:

I really don’t like sheep, but during two summer stints working on a Wyoming sheep and cattle ranch as a youth, I came to admire not only the shepherds, but their amazing sheep dogs. While being a cowboy can be considered glamorous, riding high over the range, free wind in your face...being a shepherd is quite a different story. You walk and hike and stumble trying not to get tripped up in badger holes or barbed wire or bitten by rattlesnakes. You eat dust and constantly itch from insect bites, stickers and greasy wool; the incessant bleating and general helplessness and stupidity of a flock can sometimes almost drive you crazy.

Having said all that, shepherds develop an enormous respect for their dogs who are every bit the equal in their loyalty and dedication to top working cow ponies. And on lonesome, windy, sagebrush-covered hills and under starry skies, you feel a tremendous sense of empowerment and responsibility to your dogs and your flock so you walk a little taller.

I really don’t like sheep, but I have a great and enduring admiration for the people and dogs who work in the sheep industry.
