Donna Gruber Adair is a former teacher of high school English and creative writing, with a degree in history. Her short stories and poetry have won awards. Her new book, An American Odyssey, tells the story of a real-life pioneer family on the frontier. It is available at Amazon.com in soft cover or for Kindle.

An American Odyssey has been very favorably reviewed by both The Midwest Book Review: "Donna Gruber Adair does well in crafting a riveting story of the pioneers. 'An American Odyssey' is a fine and much recommended read, not to be overlooked." And from Kirkus Reviews: "A captivating generational tale of one family's pioneering travels during America's 19th-century westward expansion. Adair masterfully weaves pivotal events of the 1800s such as slavery, Bleeding Kansas and the Pike's Peak gold rush into the lives of this family, crafting a perfect mix of action, tragedy, and romance. It is a fitting, rousing tribute to the courage of ordinary families who made extraordinary sacrifices."
