We’ve all been there a time or two: The Blackfeet steal your horses and leave you afoot out on the starveling prairie; a hippo overturns your dugout and dumps your whole outfit to the bottom of the Zambezi River…
Our pard Eccentric Cowboy has fallen upon some hard times and needs a hand. He ain’t asking for a handout though: He’s got trade goods to exchange for your beaver plews.
Eccentric Cowboy — aka Austen Confer — fellow fan of the great Karamojo Bell, is the author of a series of tales from the Primal Frontier. These are tales in the tradition of Arthur Conan Doyle’s Lost World writings, featuring a explorer and dinosaur hunter of classic Frontier Partisan proportions.
Primal Frontier is a Weird West alternate history setting in the 1860s and 1870s on a massive continent that is populated by all sorts of exotic creatures from our past, the most prominent being dinosaurs. It is a primitive and savage land, bristling with dangerous animals and hostile natives. This land of mystery and peril has been only scarcely explored. But brave men and women will venture into the unknown and encounter all manner of adventures.
Only the the boldest and bravest of men dare to explore the dinosaur-infested interior of Magna Terra, The Wild Continent. Ansgar Tapio is one of those few. Raised in the rugged Red Hills and having explored the land he is well prepared for the challenges that lie before him. But when he and his best friend Jandar are chased into the dreaded Vangor Mountains by a hostile tribe, they make a discovery within that neither ever dreamed existed in the mountain range. Menaced by new foes their every step is fraught with danger as they seek to escape the Vangor Mountains, and perhaps bring a stranger out with them.
Head on over to that mighty jungle trading post on the Amazon and pick up a book or two. You’ll enjoy the read — and it might just keep ol’ EC from having to eat his moccasins.
