Preserving the West’s wild history: Browns Park author receives two book awards

Through Diana Allen Kouris’ words, she has been able to capture what life was like in the days of Old West cattle ranching in Browns Park, she said. “I have had many people tell me that they felt like they were right there, riding beside us, living that life and eating the meals with us, and all,” said Kouris, a Kinnear, Wyo., resident. “That is a tremendous compliment to me, for my writing, because that was my dream.” It was for her vivid depiction of Wild West life that Kouris thinks her book, “Riding the Edge of an Era: Growing Up Cowboy on the Outlaw Trail,” was recently honored with two awards.
