In his sixteen Gabriel Du Pré Montana-based mysteries Bowen has touched on the romantic history of the Metis, and in the comic Yellowstone Kelly novels retold some history in a manner calculated, he says, “to offend the dreary scribblers of hack “Western” novels.” He is now nearly finished with a long novel set in 1923, a year when Jack Dempsey and Tommy Gibbons fought for the World Heavyweight title, Tom Mix made movies and prosperity came to Montana’s plains through bootlegging hooch.
