Absaroka (ISBN 0-9714161-8-4), a spellbinding work of fiction, manages to encompass many issues relevant to a wide range of readers. It heralds the tenacity of the human spirit, the consequences of wise choices, and love and protection for the land and it's natural beauty, spotlighting the wild horse herds of Montana and Wyoming. Author Bochmann's spare, sensitive prose pulls the reader into the drama of the story, making it easy for them to relate to the hopes, disappointments, hardships, and triumphs of the characters. Based in the west, Absaroka will appeal not only to those who understand ranching, rural living, and horses, but also to veterans of foreign wars, those who have experienced the loss of loved ones, and those who care about saving our natural resources, including the few remaining wild horse herds in our country. It reflects the lessons learned growing up on a ranch where strong values, hard work, and lots of love were part of the author's upbringing.
