There is Trouble on the Horizon
There’s trouble headed towards the critter town of Brightspring. The vile varmint, Rowdy Rocky, was spotted on the road north heading our way. That no-good raccoon’s got a large posse in tow. With that many ne’er-do-wells outfitted with irons under his orders, nothing good can come of it. Brightspring hasn’t had a sheriff since Wyatt Eagle passed last year. Supposin’ now, it’s up to us and the town to fend off Rocky and his posse. Except most folks just wanna let Rocky and his boys have their way. Figurin’ they might cause more trouble if they are opposed. So it’s just gonna be us against them.
We gots a day to prepare but I reckon Rocky’ll arrive at high noon on the morrow. I gots no reckoning fer whatever his plans are but can figure they ain’t good. Ifn we’re smart, we can be ready fer him. Get ready fer rootin', tootin', Wild West critter shootin'... It's Yee-Paw!
The Feeling of a Wild West Setting
As a lifelong fan of Western movies, Yee-Paw: High Raccoon is a love letter to works of John Ford, Howard Hawkes, Clint Eastwood, and more. The old timey, Wild West dialect that the book is written and the images critters in western garb helps craft the books fun and playful tone. A lot of research and rewatching the western classics helped shape the feeling that mimicked those films.
