Elder Spencer W. Kimball laid his warm, strong hands on my head and in a raspy voice, proceeded to set me apart as a missionary.

From mustang bands sweeping up the bands sweeping up the hidden draws and ridges of the high, desolate San Rafael Swell to a horse-trading oasis hidden deep in an auto-wrecking yard on the outskirts of Spanish Fork, Utah, Nelson finds voices, elegant in their terseness, of people you never knew but should know. This is the story of Michael Diamond’s coming of age, of finding grace in tragedy.
During the early 1970’s while living in Montana and writing stories for the Bitterroot Journal, Lee had occasion to interview a number of people who claimed to have seen the mysterious Bigfoot of Sasquatch creatures. Lee described these interviews in various articles. At a time when Bigfoot interest seemed to be at an all-time high, Lee wrote and published Taming the Sasquatch, a fictional account describing the capture and taming of one of these creatures. The story was published in book form in the early 1980’s, but has been out of print until now.
