A cop, artist, musician, firearms instructor, fishing guide, public speaker, ranch hand, radio personality and novelist, David R. Lewis has seen life through many eyes and from many perspectives. From childhood on the banks of the Sangamon River to adulthood on a metropolitan police department, through hardscrabble years deep in the Ozark Mountains to working in broadcasting, David has gathered a wealth of life experience that is as evident in his words as it is on his face.
David lives with his wife, Laura, in the country outside Kansas City on seven miles of bad road, where he watches turkeys, dodges deer, argues with two Australian cattle dogs, and devotes his time to writing.

I was recently provided a complimentary copy of Deer Run Trail – David R Lewis for an honest review. I will be the first to admit I have only read a few books of the Western genre. If they were all as good as this one, I would read a lot of them. I think novelists should be good story tellers and David is!
For me reading Deer Run Trail was like being masterfully drawn through a window in time and I went willingly. The author’s creative use of a point of view was excellent and led me to readily accept the book’s virtual reality. It was easy to become drawn into the interesting story line. The nice balance between story line and characters made this an easy read. This is a book I did not want to put down and I finished it in two sittings on the same day.
The book’s pacing was just right so the story line did not lag and yet the characters were believable and interesting. The dialogue added to the period feel of the book and was very well done. The writing was of very good quality.
In summary I give this book 5 Stars and recommend it not only to fans of the Western genre but to others who are adventurous.
