Jakey's Fork – A River's Journey
Thinking about this year's road trip? Before you break out the Rand McNally, you might want to check out Richard Little's latest collection of stories. Jakey's Fork starts high in the Rocky Mountains and follows historic travelers along pathways that opened the American West — through Wyoming, Montana, and into North Dakota. Along the way, spend time with Lewis and Clark, Butch Cassidy, Sitting Bull, Teddy Roosevelt — and a dinosaur or two.
Careful research, skillful storytelling…geography…and a dash of humor enliven this vivid texture of the American West. Retired lawyer and government lobbyist, Richard Little has lived in the Pacific Northwest for over 35 years. He is the author of a previous set of travel pieces, "Postcards from the Road —Stories" and has been published in the Seattle Times, the Seattle Post-Intelligencer, and the Santa Fe Writers Project; also in the 2016 Summer Solstice issue of Cirque Magazine and in Clover, A Literary Rag.
