"Men and women. Women also served in Vietnam We're asked to put their humanity aside and do inhumane things to other humans to come back from that place you have to rediscover your humanity and it's again something you really can't do on your own. You need other people to do that with you. If there's romance involved in that so much better yeah. Yeah and the station that you hit the series is also think it's rather lovely and poignant to me have a lot of beautiful descriptions of the of the station but it is quite a remote remote pan bargain at county which is the least populated counting in the US and you might the observation that it is about the same size as Vietnam which has a certain poignancy as well about what drew you to Hannity County. While I discovered the beauty and mystery of Harney County many many decades ago my folks had a place in nearby Klamath County which is also in Oregon and and that served as a great base for me to launch hiking camping trips throughout Oregon. And that's how I found Harney County. It's it's close by Later when I earned my degree in journalism at the University of Oregon The campuses in Eugene and Eugene is on the rainy side of the state the cascade mountains divide the state between the wet side and the dry side wealth the dryness and heat of the High Lonesome County was always beckoning. Then there's the rich cultural diversity of the county itself it's sparsely populated but it hasn't really rich communities from the piat the multi generations of settlers and ranchers others large. Bass community there and all of that is big progress. Great characters and then there's just the sheer beauty of the landscape. I mean to me so can a natural hot springs way out in the middle of nowhere beneath the night sky that has more star Sean than grains of sand in the desert around. You doesn't get any better than that doesn't have. I wondered if it was an area that you had personally. You know hiked transcendent because it comes through very strongly. Yes and I I love their love it there. I go there often. I live in California. I'll be going up there in a few weeks During the Spring Harney County is like the Center for the bird. Migrations that go through a national wildlife refuge there around Malheur Lake. Millions of birds fly through there. It's a great gathering of both wildlife. Also people from all over the world go there so it's just got so much going on a hiking grade being in the desert the wildlife. You can see everything from Prague worn also called pronghorns antelope To Deer Mountain Lions And of course Just the desert landscape of Sagebrush juniper trees blowing tumbleweeds beautiful. Yeah Yeah you've mentioned a couple of times. The piracy people and that threat is same tomato becoming more prominent sudenly in the shaming is. It's a very significant. Part of the story wasn't difficult research in debt side of things. There's a great literature about the Pie. You to push the pilot themselves are great storytellers and they Are Very helpful. I also we've in some other of the local American Indian tribes again. I'm writing in the sixties and and that's where the books are set the term the terms like native American really wasn't in parlance. Then but the other people I talk about are the Klamath people who live nearby. I introduced a character at the end of the shaming is becomes a character in the prominent position in the next book. The whisper soul also the people who live in in northern California thing. I try to mimic the books of bit. On the way the pilot tell their own stories. They call themselves Nomo in their language. But they're known as great weaver's a hunter gatherer bands of people that roam throughout the great basin and they create these beautiful baskets for carrying food and water and backboards for carrying their babies and they use a variety of natural materials for these creations. Like strip the willow or supermac hides and dried grasses and each of these things these materials in each item they. We've tells a story about them their traditions and their culture in the land in which they live. And that's what I'm trying to do too is to take all the elements the natural elements in the region. The people the stories that the the pilot tell and and help us those to tell the story about nick. Drake and the people he encounters in Orange County. It's lovely if reed is interested in doing a nick drake tour so to speak you know if they wanted to come to Oregon same nick. Drake country is there a true of that? You would suggest to them. A lot of the travel in Harney County is best done by foot by horse or by vehicle. I think the easiest thing to do if people are coming from great great distances away is to somehow get themselves to an airport close by. There's not one in the main town of Harney County which is Burns. Lesson fly privately or by air taxi but in nearby Redmond which is over by Bend Oregon. You can fly in there. You can rent a four wheel drive vehicle and two hours. You're in Harney. County in Burns Burns his a great jumping off point for the rest of the county. It's kind of the town. Biggest town Population up twenty five hundred from there. You can make treks down to the wildlife refuges like Malheur Lake. You can go a little further south down to the heart. Mountain Wildlife Refuge. A lot of these are self directed but they also have individual guides and trips that you can get there easily found online South direct trips. Or what I usually do but I also like to go to the wildlife refuge. Just 'cause I can meet other people there at the visitor centers around tramping around looking at birds or or whatnot hiking and you can go camping almost anywhere. There's camping sites around there's also small guest ins and it's just a great place to get away from it all it's remote The people are friendly and Scenery is nonstop fantastic and they just completely switching Style you got Jack McCall. Still writing the medical series. I haven't written Jacqueline cool. Since I finished the fourth book which right from that. I went into the Nick Drake novel series and I'd gone to a point after four books in the Jack. Cool series where I felt. I left. Jack McQuillan coolant his family in a really good spot He's a he's such an interesting character any so different than nick. Drake and the time is different. Settings are different The Jack Cool. Capers are set in San Francisco in modern time. He's a con artist are recovering con artists and along the way he always gets involved in solving crimes when I first started that series of is joining upon. Pass what I used to like to read when I when I was when I was growing up and stuff. I love the thin man series. I you know I liked later. Like reading the Carl Hyacinth. Books I used to like sort of the It takes a thief series. Things like that where you have humor. You have a lot of places a character. You've got interaction light banner. The violence is is fairly minimal. And bad guys gotTA COME UP. And they all made for great stories but the biggest character all four. Those books is the city of San Francisco. And that's what I was really trying to shine a light on an all the diversity. That's there all the difference. All the foods The street scene. The action. That's happening there Whether it's from sports culture to counterculture to the great Arts culture there That's was happening but again since Shake city which was the last one. I wrote net series. I haven't gone back there that I don't close the door to it. I'm not saying that I won't but for now the Nick Drake characters in those stories have really got a hold of me. And it's it's hard turn my back on his while you flowing. It's important to came dying. I think isn't it yet? Jenkins very sort of urban flip mouthy end end. Lots of one liners and sort of quite different from the the more intense spiritual militant of sp the underlying speak with It's terrific the drive-by so successfully really quite contrasting characters and stars any you can comfortably divide which is fantastic. How did you come across Jack? What what made you start with Jack? We'll I think clone Jack is a little bit of again people that I know people that have been hustlers in and I'm not a con artist. But as a freelance writer on my life there is always a little bit of a hustler in me as well trying to make a buck as a writer a what could. I do to get out there and convince some buddy to pay me money to go assignment To travel to the ends of the Earth to write about nature and natural history And there's just that sort of okay. I've got to get somebody to do that. The Publisher magazine editor. Tom A good story. There's a little bit of a con in there too because you'd never write quite sure what the story is going to be when you get there but you can paint the picture. Salam on it get there and then delivered at the end. So little bit of that was in there The other characters in the bumper people. I know I have character in there. Called Hark who is of Jack McColl's right hand best friend sidekick in when I was younger I used to work And during high school and stuff Worked at a auto painting bodyshop and there are a lot of hearts. There guys were in cars.
