Feb. 25, 2011 - PRLog -- Ripped from today’s headlines, The Bone Trail tells the story of journalist and horsewoman, Kate Wyndham, who is sent to northern Nevada to do a story on the disappearance of two wild horse advocates. When Wyndham attempts to gain information from the FBI and government authorities she is stonewalled.  She turns to Jim Ludlow, a local rancher who lives on an Indian Reservation near where the advocates disappeared.  Ludlow, a Shoshone Indian horse "whisperer" agrees to try to help Wyndham and they begin a search for answers that may cost them everything the hold dear – it may even cost them their lives.

“When I became aware of how our wild horse herds were being mismanaged by the federal government, I immediately saw a parallel between this and the holocaust that has been perpetrated on the Native population in this country.  Several shocking events happened in northern Nevada during the time I was researching these issues for my online news magazine, and the story just fell together,” said Nell Walton, author of The Bone Trail.

Nell Walton is an avid horsewoman and also owns two wild horses, both of which came from a herd near Elko, NV.  She is also the founder and managing editor of the online equestrian news magazine, The AllHorses Post (  She lives in East Tennessee on a small horse farm with her husband, four horses, one donkey, two cats and two dogs.  The Bone Trail is her first novel.
