Who of us, at one time or another, hasn't wondered if we are alone in the universe? Mitch Wilde never had until a failed attempt at pulling an arrow out of his best friend Jack’s shoulder began a string of strange and unexpected events in the small Pacific Northwest Town of Outlaw River.

Mitch is challenged in ways he never dreamed when Native Americans start vanishing throughout the region and re-appearing in strange places on horseback. In addition, who are the uninvited strangers ransacking some of their homes? Added to this, Jack has taken to odd nocturnal treks. Jasper, an eccentric neighbor, is making Mitch question long held beliefs. The local sheriff releases hostility he has held against Mitch since high school and something—nobody wants to call them UFOs—has just crashed into several surrounding lakes.

Can Mitch keep himself out of jail, figure out what the strange entities emerging from the lake are, and protect the beautiful life he and his wife Mabey worked so hard to create? Finally, can Mitch help his eccentric neighbor save the residents of Outlaw River before it's too late?




About this author: Mike Walters' debut Novel, The Outlaw River Wilde, sprung from an idea while watching Ancient Aliens on the History channel. He intertwines his love of Native American culture and a passion for the Pacific Northwest, primarily his birth state of Oregon. Mike sat down one day and started writing. The characters and story came to life as he wrote. "Every session was as if I were reading something new myself for the first time. It is a blast to see what happens. I worked hard at taking thoughts I have had over the years watching Ancient Aliens, as well as my love of Native American culture and the Pacific Northwest. Bringing these ideas together in a novel was more fun than I ever imagined."
