Local writer releases fourth novel
Under a snowcapped peak called Lady’s Leg, in a vast evergreen forest carpeting the East Kootenay Rocky Mountain Trench, two young tree planters tormented by inner demons get swept up in a nerve-racking, gut-wrenching hunt for a mythical treasure where they must team with an eco-warrior to save their lives, defeat the local oligarch and protect the archaeological discovery of the 21st Century.
The author weaves a complex story and intriguing characters into a roller coaster eco-adventure. The scramble to locate a crusty old artifact crosses alpine meadows and traverses steep ravines, freezing streams and cliffs of ancient rock.
A limited first edition of one-hundred (100) copies are numbered, hand stamped and signed by the author. Get your one-of-a-kind book at Saturday’s Wasa Lions breakfast, Centre 64 First Saturday Art market August 6, or contact [email protected].
Reader beware: mature themes, strong language and some violence.
As a communications professional, Nowell spent too much time in the corporate trenches when flex-time and remote work meant standing in line at the unemployment office. He makes his home in a cedar log cabin resting beside a kettle pond nestled in the forest green slopes along the western edge of the Rocky Mountains.
