Dry Gulch II – Justice Prevails is a continuation of the entertaining, fictional 1850's Colorado western saga Dry Gulch. The book includes the same colorful characters you enjoyed in Dry Gulch.

Foreword by Thomas E. Simmons
“Judith received enough positive feedback from Dry Gulch readers that she had no choice but to complete this tale with a second book.”

“Although her characters are fictional, Judith spent many hours doing research, and her descriptions of the times and places are accurate. Judith has always said that she wasn’t really writing this story, but that it was writing itself. Will Douglas Stone find a way to cheat justice? Will Cliff hang on to his mine and use his hard won wealth to improve his own circumstances and that of others? Or, will Douglas Foul Crook steal it all? Read on.”

“I so enjoyed the manuscript. I love how you put the relationships with humans and animals with ‘eternal purposes.’ I also loved the use of dreams in knowing we don’t pay enough attention to a major source of information we are given. The Colorado history filled me with intrigue and awe.” – Anita Allen: Wife, mother and Registered Nurse, Monument, Colorado
