Reading & Book Signing

Reading & Book Signing: Southern Idaho Author Bennett at Cottonwood Collective

The Cottonwood Collective and Elmore Books & More, in partnership with the Mountain Home Arts Council, will host a reading & book signing for Southern Idaho Author and Mountain Home native RW Bennett on Friday, January 13, at 5 pm. Come meet the author and get a signed copy of his historical novel Rock Creek: Water, Risk and Grit (November 2016).

About the novel:

In 1884, a woman determined to establish her own destiny is thwarted by violence, abandonment and betrayal. She forges a bond with an immigrant Scottish couple who, ten years earlier, escaped a life of hopelessness in the service of the aristocracy and journeyed to the American West to build a ranch. She risks her life to help them overcome a brutal winter that threatens not only the couple’s livelihood but their lives as well. Later, they join forces after the young woman makes an extraordinary discovery at Rock Creek on an abandoned property near the frontier town of Ryegrass.

 About the author:

He and his wife Marsha live in Boise and will celebrate 47 years of marriage in 2017. They have two married daughters and four grandchildren.
