Lost and Found Bruce was involentairly plunging down a raging river. He had no idea why he was there. He didn't even know who he was. Time and again the tried to access the river canyon rim only to be foiled by mother nature. With the help of a misty vision he escaped the river only to find himself in a duel with the hostile desert. Heat and dehydration took their toll, but the misty vision continued to help in times of desperation and danger. Hikers found him, a thin, dehydrated, unwashed, shrunken body, and delivered him to help. Mind blurred he struggled to remember even his name. Finally realizing he had witnessed a crime and was dumped in the river by the perpetrators he became focused on revenge which put him and anyone close to him in grave danger. Once again he was struggling in the water, struggling for his life. Finders Keepers Earl explored remote desert canyons for the pure pleasure he derived from finding natures architectural wonders and signs of ancient civilizations. To his amazement he came upon a large treasure of old gold coins. Researching their history he found they were either the loot from a mint robbery a hundred years ago or according to the dates on the coins, they did not exist. In an effort to solve the mystery he was identified by a small gang that knew of the coins. They were determined to have them by fair means or foul, preferably foul. Earl had his work cut out for him retrieving the coins from the deseert and keeping them out of the hands of the gang. If that wasn't enough he had to deal with a federal claim to the coins if they were, in fact, the coins taken from the mint over a hundred years ago. Two desert stories sure to be praised by those who love outdoor adventure and conflict.

About the Author:

A retired rancher, Alvin Colville has realized a long time desire to write a book. He has taken experiences from his life as a rancher and as a wilderness guide, molded them along with considerable immagianation, into a stories of excitement and drama, with a tiny bit of romance. His writing experience dates back into his college days where he began writing freelance for local newspapers and trade magazines. He has had material in many different magazines, usually magazines of outdoor activitie type content. His experience as a mountain wilderness guide and river runner has supplied him with a plethora of material that, along with an active immagination has resulted in publication of two adventure oriented books. Books that have conflict, adventure, excitement for all and a little romance to hold the interest of those that want it. He says that most of his writing skills come from experience, but he did have some formal training in journalism during his college years. For several years he had a weekly column in five local newspapers. The weekly column began as a class assignment and progressed into a weekly column lasting long after his graduation. Most of the column content was from personal experience on the ranch or in the wilderness as a guide. His books reflect the same background. Now that he has retired from ranching he will spend more time writing. Writing is a hobby he says, but we tend to look upon it as a second profession in his case. Mr. Colville was born and lives in Del Norte, Colorado, on the same ranch where he was born. His family is scattered about the western half of the United States but they come 'home' for a visit frequently. His grandchildren think it is "cool" to spend time on the ranch with grandpa. Grandpa thinks it is 'cool' to have the grandkids around.
