Introducing Jack Naylor’s novel: McCammon

Jack puts together a puzzle, piece by piece, but without the aid of a picture on the box. You will be frustrated with the pieces that ought to fit but don’t, and with that one piece that seems to fit nowhere until it is the only piece left. You may have to step away for a while and come back to this story, like the characters themselves, only when your heart calls you back.

Jack tells his tale in a location where his heart will rest forever. It is a place with the breadth of the open West, the peacefulness of a gentle valley, and the sovereignty of an eight thousand-foot granite mountain that guards a small town named McCammon. 

This is a well-researched historical novel set in the wild prairies and mountainous panoramas of Utah, Idaho and Montana during the mid-1860s. Jack invites you to follow the adventures of Josh as he winds his way on horseback across in the wide open spaces and small settlements along the beautiful Marsh Valley in Southeast Idaho. What is Josh seeking? The saga now begins . . . Click the "McCammon" tab above.
