About the Author

Don Coldsmith (February 28, 1926 - June 25, 2009) an American author of primarily Western fiction. A past president of Western Writers of America, Coldsmith wrote more than 40 books, as well as hundreds of newspaper and magazine articles. His Spanish Bit Saga, a series of related novels, helped to re-define the Western novel by adopting the point of view of the Native Americans, rather than the European immigrants.In addition to his career as a writer, Coldsmith was a medical doctor, serving as a family practitioner in Emporia, Kansas, until 1988, when he chose to concentrate on writing. In addition, Coldsmith and his 2nd wife Edna were cattle ranchers and breeders of Appaloosa horses.Coldsmith, who had periodically taught English classes at Emporia State University, was awarded the Western Writers of America's Golden Spur Award for best original paperback for The Changing Wind of 1990. Other honors include Distinguished Kansan (awarded by the Native Sons and Daughters of Kansas in 1993) and the Edgar Wolfe Award for lifetime contributions to literature (1995). Coldsmith was in high demand as a speaker, especially when the subject was the High Plains and the American West.


"I've been waiting for Moon of Madness to be published for several years. Moon of Madness is the last and final book in the Spanish Bit Saga series. There will be no more. Author Don Coldsmith passed away in 2009. This book was written before his passing. His wife has been trying to get this last book published for several years according to one website. It looks like she suceeded. I have all of the other books in the series. I am especially looking forward to reading this one due to the reference in the book to the New Madrid earthquake which ocurred within 200 miles of where I live. Farewell my friend. I only knew you through your books, but a friend you were none the less." - DB, Amazon Reviewer
