From Prineville/Oregon State.
Rick Steber has gained a well-deserved national reputation and is best known for writing honest stories about the strong people and the open landscapes of the Old West. His gift to all of us is saving the stories of people that otherwise would be lost and forgotten. Steber is an engaging Western personality with more than thirty titles under his belt and over a million books in print.
He writes and presents these stories with compassion, understanding and intensity. Steber’s reputation as a historian and talented story-teller spans from coast to coast. He is the only Oregon author to have won the prestigious Western Writers of America Spur Award – Best Western Novel. In addition he has also won several other awards including the Western Heritage Award, Benjamin Franklin Award, and the Mid-America Publishers Award. He is a keen observer of the changing American West and he articulates these changes in prose that are boldly descriptive, invigorating and creative.
Steber speaks at national and international conferences and visits schools where he talks to students about the importance of education, developing reading and writing skills, and impressing upon them the value of saving our history for future generations.
We met Rick at his home in Prineville in Oregon, played in his forest, ate the best wild burgers and got some great stories from the wild wild West. This man carries an incredible knowledge about the US immigration history and manage to tell it like nobody else. He is a real national treasure, and has phenomenal skills of visualising the many colours and faces of the brutal history of the United States of America.
