BUFFALOed is the First Place Grand Prize Winner for fiction in the 2009 INDIE Book Awards. I am so honored to receive this award. It is a tribute to my grandmother and our Norwegian family heritage. Thank you, Independent Book Publishing Professionals Group.

What's the book all about?

"This well-researched book is just the kind of yarn that the master of tall tales, one Charles Marion Russell (1862-1926), would endorse without hesitation. The dialogue, the atmosphere, and the historical period in "Buffaloed" are superb. Fans of Russell and Montana history will discover that the book includes real events and places along with a supporting cast of historical personages.

In his book "Montana Adventure," a friend and contemporary of Russell, Frank B. Linderman, writes that "Charlie Russell was the most lovable man I have ever known." This is the Charlie Russell who emerges in Fairlee Winfield's wonderful novel."
--Malcolm R. Campbell "The Sun Singer"

"This work has cinematic appeal. I wanted to read on and was never bored. Its premise is intriguing and sent me to Google to see how much was based on fact"
óBarbara B. Scott, Author
