Dr. Elizabeth Thompson, writing as Lizzi Tremayne, grew up wild in the redwoods of coastal California, mostly on a pony, attended UC Davis School of Vet Med, and practiced in the gold country of Placerville for two years before heading for the wilds of New Zealand. Dr. Liz is the proud mother of two boys in New Zealand. When she's not writing, she's swinging a rapier or shooting a bow in medieval garb, driving a carriage or playing in her garden on her hobby farm, singing, cooking, being an equine veterinarian or high school science teacher. She is multiply published and awarded in special interest magazines and veterinary periodicals.
A Long Trail Rolling, is a saga of the Old West with a multicultural cast of those who make up America, it would interest readers who enjoy Westerns, horses, American Indians, immigrants, and the Pony Express. It has a capable heroine, strong historical detail, period veterinary treatment and frontier-pushing characters. It compares to the work of Phillipa Gregory, Diana Gabaldon, and Jean Auel, with a little Laura Ingalls Wilder thrown in.
This novel is the first in The Long Trail quadrilogy of historical adventure sagas following her characters from the wilderness of 1860 Utah to Colonial New Zealand.
