More Tales from The Cimarron: The Continuing Saga of the Quinn Family’s Montana Homestead. There is a mystique about the American West, with its beauty and sense of freedom, which reaches out to the rugged individualist in each of us and continues to beckon the hearts of aspiring pioneers. Do any of these traditional concepts of the Old West remain viable today? Is it possible to successfully blend city and country lifestyles? Find out by reading the true ongoing outdoor, wildlife, and survival adventures of Nancy Quinn and her family, modern day westerners who left the conveniences of urban comfort to face the dangers and hardships of life on a mountain in rural Montana. Written with the same style, humor, and perseverance that originated in Nancy’s first book, the award winning Go West, Young Woman!, and continued in its popular sequel, Stay West, Young Woman!, her latest saga, Still West of Nowhere, recounts their most recent escapades as they continue to adapt to their wilderness homestead.

Have you ever found a cougar on your swing set or a moose in your driveway? Go West, Young Woman! is the true story of one family’s transition from beltway living in metro Washington, D.C. to what they thought would be a “calmer” existence in rural Montana. They soon discover how unprepared they are for the challenges ahead, both comical and adventurous. The humor of their early encounters with cattle and local customs only masks the more ominous confrontations with predators and nature. Through their journey they discover the true meaning of the “code of the West,” a concept which has not entirely vanished from the American way of life.

The Quinn Family’s Montana Homesteading Adventure Continues…

Have you ever had the strong desire to move across the country and experience a dramatic change of lifestyle? What would happen if you did and how well would you adjust to it?

Stay West, Young Woman! continues the true homesteading adventures from Go West, Young Woman!, the story of how an inexperienced military family makes the dramatic transition from eastern urban living to “retirement” on a rugged Montana mountainside. Continuing to face mercurial weather, unorthodox neighbors, wild animals, and the challenges of an ever expanding family of dogs and horses, they greet their days with determination and a sense of humor, as they decide their fate while living life along America’s great Continental Divide.

Great Story of Family Unity and Adventure!... A story with humor and heart.

Nancy Quinn has made a career out of creating beautiful, heartfelt moments for others.  She is a gifted artist and storyteller (her books are a treasure of the heart). I think of her as the 'Montana Queen'. She really is the 'New Millennium’s answer to Laura Ingalls Wilder'.

I watch her videos here in the UK, they are awesome.  She is the 'Princess Montana' for sure. Princess Nancy is like a beacon on a foggy shore giving such a warming presence to a stranded ship.   From city to country, a true gem.
