It is a great thrill to announce that Golden Spike, The Iron Horse Chronicles, Book 3, has been nominated as a finalist for the 2018 Will Rogers Medallion Award in the category of Younger Readers. The winners will be announced at the annual banquet in Fort Worth, Texas, on Saturday, October 27, 2018. I am making plans to attend the ceremonies.
Eagle Talons, The Iron Horse Chronicles, Book 1, received the Bronze Will Rogers Medallion Award for Younger Readers in 2015, and Bear Claws, The Iron Horse Chronicles, Book 2, received the Silver Will Rogers Medallion Award for Younger Readers in 2016. Followers of this blog will recall that Bear Claws was also awarded first place in fiction in 2016 by the Wyoming State Historical Society.
