Ephraim literally waded into herds of sheep and cattle, as his powerful paws broke legs and backs and slung entrails in every direction. Defying the herdsmen who invaded his historical domain, he overturned their steel traps, and dared them to come get him with an impunity unparalleled in the history of the American West. What Clark didn't know was that Ephraim had a friend in Danny Evans....This is the story of a bear and a boy, and the forces that rush them to the brink of tragedy as Danny discovers himself and the value of faith.The Ephraim Chronicles is Lee Nelson's 26th book--a novel of determination and spiritual growth, based on actual history. Some of the names have been changed. Some have not.

From one of the greatest Western writers of all time, Lee Nelson, comes Born to Rope. the flinch in a horse's, the drop of a boy's eyes: This is a rare book, attentive to the simple detail out of which great stories flow. from mustang bands sweeping up the bands sweeping up the hidden draws and ridges of the high, desolate San Rafael Swell to a horse-trading oasis hidden deep in an auto-wrecking yard on the outskirts of Spanish Fork, Utah, Nelson finds voices, elegant in their terseness, of people you never knew but should know. This is the story of Michael Diamond's coming of age, of finding grace in tragedy. Reviews - In Born to Rope, I found something that I didn't know I'd lost. Not since I was a child reading King of the Wind did I find myself caring this much about a horse. - Warren Hatch, Salt Press I am not an avid novel reader. I would rather read magazine articles, search the Internet, or find other sources of facts or information. However, your book Born to Rope caught my eye. I read slow, but your book seemed to read fast. I am new to horse ownership, owning 4 horses, including a very fast grandson of Easy Jet. I have never attempted to rope but a few of my neighbors rope in a corral/arena just behind my place and I have enjoy watching their efforts from my deck during the summer. Your descriptions of Max were very painted. the emotions of the human characters were easy to feel. It was an awesome book! By the end I was wishing it was longer. Thanks for the great read! - Jeff Rowley
In 1885, while The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn was becoming one of the bestselling American classics of modern times, Mark Twain began this sequel in which Huck Finn, Tom Sawyer, and Jim head west on the trail of two white girls kidnapped by Sioux warriors. Fifteen thousand words into the work, Twain stopped in the middle of a sentence, never to go back. The unfinished story sat on dusty shelves for more than a hundred years until author Lee Nelson decided to finish it, using Twain's incomplete manuscripts. The result is a story of adventure, wit, and wisdom, with readers saying they can't tell where Twain leaves off and Nelson begins. Tom and Huck seek true love while tramping through Indian country, stealing from the US Army, facing a gunfight and hangman's noose in California, and learning the hard way that "book Injuns and real Injuns ain't the same."
