Brown’s Park native, author Diana Allen Kouris, will be the special guest at the Sommers Homestead Living History Museum on Friday, June 21st at 1:00PM for a book signing.
Her third book, "Nighthawk Rising: A Biography of Accused Cattle Rustler Queen Ann Bassett of Brown’s Park" came out in May, 2019. The 416-page book includes many never-before-published photographs.
Kouris has utilized her personal and family connections, along with years of research, to record the fascinating life events of Ann Bassett who lived and ranched in the Brown’s Park region of Colorado, Wyoming and Utah in the early 1900s. Bassett was known to associate with outlaws such as Butch Cassidy, and she was accused of cattle rustling, but was never convicted. "Queen Ann, as she was called, lived a life full of adventure and controversy in the Brown’s Park region of Colorado, Wyoming, and Utah. She broke bread with Butch Cassidy, had her life turned upside down by notorious range detective Tom Horn, and stood tall against cattle baron Ora Haley." The book is also available on Amazon, Hardcover $35. Paperback $19.95.
Kouris grew up on the historic Brown’s Park Livestock Ranch, where in the 1800s Butch Cassidy found sanctuary. She is the author of two other books about Brown’s Park: "Riding the Edge of an Era: Growing Up Cowboy on the Outlaw Trail" (2009) and "The Romantic and Notorious History of Brown's Park." (1988)
