Every once in a while, a name pops into my mind.
That's what happened with Gabriel Du Pre. Gaberiel Du Pre is the main character in the Peter Bowen's Montana Mysteries.
In so far as I can tell, the last of those books published so far was published in 2006. So it has been at least that long since I have read one. But I loved them. I can't recommend them enough.
Coyote Wind was the first one, but I liked them all. Du Pre is "a Métis descendant of the French Voyageurs and Plains Indians," to quote one of the reader reviews in Amazon. The books are a mixture of western and mystery genres.
If you haven't read these Peter Bowen stories, I recommend them.
PS A little update on the animal sagas around our place. Our gardeners have trapped one opossum, three coons and a black cat in the community garden. They relocate the wild animals on someone's farm a ways from here.
Last time I told you about our animals, I didn't tell you that we had seen a Parakeet flying lose and eating from bird feeders. We saw the Parakeet again yesterday. The Parakeet should have a prosperous seed-full summer. Unfortunately, this winter won't be so kind.
