Enss says these romantic stories from the Old West are still familiar and entertaining to readers today. Like the tale of the dashing Kit Carson and his beautiful bride.
Much of the research for Love Lessons from the Old West came from papers Enss found at the Kit Carson Museum in Taos New Mexico.
Chris Enss will be at the Nevada County Railroad Museum #5 Kidder Court in Nevada City, Saturday from noon until 3 for a talk and launch of her new book.
