Parental Rating +18 (Available in both Print & E-Book)
Fiction and non-fiction, truth and non-truth yet the subject and the content of all truth may indeed be fiction or in fact, the fiction may be quite close to the truth. All of the characters in this novel are as true as characters can be, but the names aren't the same as the people they represent. Names have been changed to protect all innocents. Contents of the story are both real and present. The actual murder(s) in question have been solved; therefore, all places, names and references remain fiction.
Wallowa Country is a magical place in Northeastern Oregon where the fictional story takes place. It is a majestic region of untapped contours still as remote from urban civilization as any forested place within the developed world. Much of the story did happen and details of the events are as 'real' as any mediated present-day news report. Most of the fiction in the documentation of the story fills gaps where the mind demands knowledge within fiction. Outside of the novel, truth still wonders in the same darkness as ghost vapor in Mountain Meadows. This book is dedicated to Kaelin and her kindred sisters, who brought her back to life, and to Peter Matthiessen for the charm and style of Mister Watson.
The Murder of Kaelin is particularly dedicated to the tens of thousands of lost young runaways whose fates are usually never known. My dedication goes out to a multitude of young ones who disappear into the dark of our cities and to those who crawl into the black places in our rural forests destinies are as acrid as tortured victims 'round the world.
