As the book review editor for True West magazine, I receive calls, emails and announcements on new books almost every day. But, I never expected to receive the Western novel A Long Trail Rolling a New Zealand author—let alone a phone call from her to tell me about her book—and warn me that a return call might be expensive—since she lives in Waihi, N.Z.! Lizzi Tremayne was raised riding horses in the Santa Cruz Mountains of California, went to UC Davis and had a veterinary practice in the historic gold-country foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. Today, she has traded California’s historic gold country for New Zealand’s in Waihi in the Hauraki district of the North Island. A Long Trail Rolling is the first in a quadrilogy, which will follow the adventures of her young heroine Alexsandra from 1860 Utah to Colonial New Zealand. When Tremayne is not writing about the Old West—or riding—on her farm, she is an equine veterinarian and science teacher who has never forgotten her love of the West. A winner of the 2014 RWNZ Pacific Hearts Award, Tremayne’s book can be purchased at LizziTremayne.com.
