Judith Parr Simmons' Dry Gulch is the award-winning finalist in the western category of the
National Best Book 2009 Awards through USA Book News.

Dry Gulch is an entertaining, fictional 1850's Colorado western with colorful characters you'll fall in love with, and relate to. Judith wrote this adventure during a time of great personal challenge. By escaping into the past with Dry Gulch, she was able to deal with her modern decisions with a sense of humor and detachment.

Dry Gulch reminds us that sooner or later justice will prevail, and the bad guys will get their "come-uppins." This story takes us back to the days when the line between good and evil was far easier to discern. When you examine this story, you will discover the best of American values and the great Old West adventures.

Escape and be entertained by the crusty miner, Cliff, and his ornery burro, Betsy, who could charm a rattlesnake out of a hole. Enjoy the romance, adventure, shootouts, and a whole passel of high crimes and misdemeanors. You will discover characters who will wrap themselves around your heart and others that will "get your dander up." When these characters meet, their lives will be changed forever, and you will never forget them.
