About the Author
Life in the Territory of Montana before it became a state, was fast and short. Fast because you had better
grab onto your future, before it became your past. And those that werenít fast to defend themselves, their life
was almighty short.
Trego, was an example of the fast. Fast with his fists, fast with his twin .44ís and fast to fall in
love with the right woman.
Raised by his Father, in the wilderness of Northwest Montana, not knowing his Mother he learned love and
compassion from the nature that surrounded him. He also learned that civilization was far more dangerous than a
Trego journeyed out into that wilderness called civilization several times before his Father died, learning
its ways in order to survive. His compassion for all living things marked his personality. Even showing compassion
for the most dangerous carnivore on earth: The Human.
J. D. Oliver highlights the struggle between good and evil in all his work, whether it is novels or the Cowboy
Poetry he writes and performs. History, incredible knowledge of the world and the type of people who inhabit it
are all present in his work.
