Dr. Eldridge was a physician, poet and novelist

Dr. E.F Eldridge was an early Grand Junction physician who wrote poetry and novels, and was a consummate booster of Colorado’s Western Slope.


He is a little known character now among the pantheon of Grand Junction’s founders, but deserves to be remembered for his work, both literary and professional.

Here’s a link to the article I wrote about him in The Daily Sentinel recently.

The Cadottes

This is my latest book, which will be published by the Wisconsin Historical Society Press in May. Cadotte coverI’ve been working on the book for more than five years and I’m thrilled that we’re finally nearing publication.

Those people interested in preordering the book can do so through independent bookstores such as Grand Valley Books and Out West Books in Grand Junction and Lithic Books in Fruita.

Here is a link to an Independent Booksellers site to find other book stores if you’re not in the Grand Junction/Fruita area.
