Ruth's new book is published!

This is Jennifer Mackley writing to let you know that I have published Ruth's final book: The Peshtigo Greenhorn.  This is her fourth book, and is dedicated to Doug.

I say "I have published" to take responsibility for the editing.  The work is hers, any editing errors are mine ... so let me know if you notice something.

It is available for purchase, but if you want to wait until they remove the extra dot on the cover (to the right of Ruth's name) that should be corrected within 2 weeks.

On October 8, 1871, two fires occurred, the famous Chicago Fire and the devastating but obscure Peshtigo Fire. The fire in Chicago destroyed just over 3 square miles of the city. The Peshtigo Fire consumed an estimated 1.5 million acres or 2,400 square miles in northeastern Wisconsin and Upper Michigan. Thousands of men, women and children perished. The town of Peshtigo, Wisconsin – home to 1,700 – disappeared in the flames. No other fire in United States history has cost so many lives.

  1. I'm so happy to finally see this book in print! I had the pleasure of reading it early on in Ruth's critique group and I'm excited to see it take flight!
