Cougar's Crossing (2011)
Strong pioneer characters struggle to survive the early 1900's in northwest Alberta. There is romance, tenderness, adventure, humour, and tragedy in this facinating intertwining of fact and fiction. The characters, locations and incidents, based on reality, are set in an amazing time in Canadian history when men and women set out to tame the wilderness sometimes with disastrous consequences.
Cougar's Crossing by Lillian Ross is an excellent story that strips away the varnish and gives us a realistic portrayal of life in pioneer times.
Don M. McKay
... a superb work. It not only offers a graphic description of the early settlers of west-central Alberta, but is also a tale of mystery, sprinkled with a flavour of humour.
Eric J. Brown
To read a book by Lillian Ross is to travel to another time and place with characters who quickly become family.
