Introducing Pat Jameson, author of Juniper Town

Juniper Country and Juniper Town are both works of fiction. However, they mirror many of the actual conditions that played significant roles in the development and history of Harney County, Oregon. Outskirts Press has given me the opportunity to combine my interest in history with fictional writing. I have been pleased with the appearance and quality of both of these books.”

His professional career spanned over forty years in the automotive and truck stop industry, and he currently lives in Boise, Idaho.
