Stirrup Award Finalist

My article “Races Within a Race: The Building of the Transcontinental Railroad” that appeared in the April 2019 issue of Roundup Magazine has been selected, by the membership of Western Writers of America, as a finalist for the Stirrup Award as one of the best articles published in the magazine in 2019.

A certificate documenting the award will be presented by Johnny D. Boggs, Editor, Roundup Magazine, during the 2020 Western Writers of America Convention in Rapid City, South Dakota, scheduled for June 17-20, 2020. Hopefully, the present problems created by the Corona virus will not disrupt this planned, annual event.

I wrote about the Roundup article in a blog posted to this website on April 10, 2019. In that blog there is a link that allows you to read the article online. Go to the sidebar of this website and select April 2019 from the drop-down list that appears under Archives.

My congratulations to Michael F. Blake, who won the Stirrup Award this year, and to David Morrell, fellow finalist.
