The state of Wyoming has a rich history and Mac Blewer has his story on the folklore and geography behind the state.

Mac Blewer's newest book entitled Wyoming's Outlaw Trail depicts the history of the folklore and geography behind some of Wyoming's outlaw towns and the diversity of characters brought up in the state. Blewer says that he believes most Wyoming residents are fascinated and eager to remember the history of what happened in the state.

Fans of the book will be able to meet Mac Blewer for a book signing at three different locations with two of the venues in Laramie. The first opportunity will be on Saturday, May 4th from 1 p.m. to 3 p.m. at the Wyoming Territorial Prison State Historic Site. If you can't make it on that day and location, you can catch him at Hastings on Saturday, May 11th at 1 p.m. All the following events are free and open to the public. Blewer said he would gladly take photos with fans as well free of charge. Blewer will also be appearing for a book signing in Powell at the Homesteader Museum on May 9th at 7:30 p.m.

Blewer says his book Wyoming's Outlaw Trail explores and goes more in depth on various hideouts such as the Hole in the Wall and Red Desert. Blewer has some of the biggest outlaws and lawmen in the late 1800's and early 1900's in this book such as Butch Cassidy, Sundance Kid, "Wild" Bill Hickok, Harvey Logan "Kid Curry", and much more. Blewer conveys "Wyoming is a state that loves its past and mythology where his book looks at all of that as it builds it up and brings em down." Blewer states that his book will show the pros and cons of the outlaws of the west and how kids, women, and citizens all played a role in this time period as well. In a nutshell Blewer says his book will describe the "folklore of Wyoming."
