Traces by Patricia Hudson, the latest release from our Fireside Industries imprint, is officially released and praise for this work is rolling in!

Amy Greene, author of Bloodrot, proclaimed Patricia Hudsons lyrical yet riveting debut novel Traces is an exceptional work of historical fiction, an intimate portrait of the forgotten women in Daniel Boones life, set against the vast backdrop of the American frontier.
