WWW member and WILLA-award-winning author Linda Jacobs announces the release of her latest book in the Yellowstone series, Jackson Hole Journey, published March 1st by Camel Press.

Brothers William and Bryce Sutton vie for the love of immigrant Francesca di Paoli on a Jackson Hole dude ranch during the Roaring Twenties. Against the backdrop of the massive Gros Ventre landslide and a flood that wipes out a valley town, they fight prejudice against their Nez Perce heritage, and battle those who would destroy their ranching tradition.

WWW member and historical consultant Linda Wommack's newest book, Colorado's Historic Hotels, was released in December by Filter Press. The book includes an introduction by "Dr. Colorado," historian Tom Noel, and a CD of songs by award-winning singer/songwriter Jon Chandler.

Thirty historic hotels in Colorado currently hold the prestigious Landmark classification from the National Register of Historic Places, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, 'Landmark' designation by Colorado Preservation, Inc., or designation as historic properties from city or county organizations. Linda R. Wommack brings the stories of each of these hotels to Colorado travelers and history buffs. All but three of the hotels are at least one hundred years old, and all are all in operation today.
