Historical Time Travel

Historical time travel is award winning author, Nancy Oswald's passion.  Her  Colorado settings take readers from the base of the Sangre de Cristo Mountains where Jewish colonists lived in the early 1880's to the Sand Creek battlefield of 1864 as seen through the eyes of a young Cheyenne warrior.  A third and fourth book land a girl and her donkey in Cripple Creek, 1896.
