Edward Louis Henry has been a cowhand, saddle bronc rodeo rider, WWII infantry sergeant, reporter, U.S. Foreign Service officer and speechwriter, plus has spent 30 years in advertising. A lifelong horseman and outdoorsman, Henry is active in mountain man rendezvous where he is known by his mountain man moniker, Poredevil. Western history is his passion. His extensive research adds a strong dose of authenticity to his books. He is a member of Western Writers of America and the author of the Temple Buck Quartet and Poredevil’s Beaver Tales.
“The plot and dialog have the ring of authenticity and from the outset, the novel is an irresistible page-turner. Temple Buck has the spunk appropriate to a virile young adventurer. If you have enjoyed the fiction of Win Blevins and Terry Johnston, you will find a worthy continuation of the genre.” —Eric Bye, editor, Muzzle Blast Magazine
“Henry has produced a meticulously detailed saga of the Rocky Mountain fur trade . . . through the eyes of his heroic adventure-seeking protagonist, Temple Buck . . . Henry has a ribald sense of humor, an accurate ear for dialect, and a genuine gift for sparkling characterization . . . These books belong on the shelf of any fur trade buff; for pleasure reading and reference.” —Roundup Magazine
