Cougar's Crossing

"To read a book by Lillian Ross is to travel to another time and place with characters who quickly become family.

Read this true-to-life novel to feel the essence of the rugged era on the Canadian prairies... raw, messy, inspired by hope and motivated by grit. Ross weaves a poignant drama of wounded love, jealousy and human emotion."

Corrine McConchie, Librarian


Excerpt from Iris Tuftin's Editor's Comment

...Could this be 'his' remains, we wondered? The hated man who killed our Aunt Florence in 1921?

...The facts were overwhelming - more fascinating than we ever imagined.

Now the story of Cougar's Crossing would have to be changed.

We knew the truth - or most of it.

A Historical Novel with a Mysterious Twist

The loud, brash, irreverent Cougar Wright swore like a trooper and didn't believe in a higher power than his own strength, but he loved his family and wanted them to join him in his struggle to tame the wilderness. His family's dance with destiny in Alberta's Northwest would shake his world and theirs.
