PIERRE, S.D. (AP) - A South Dakota native and author of two historical fictional novels will be speaking at the Cultural Heritage Center in Pierre this month.

Steve Linstrom will address the process he followed to write “The Last Ram” and “The Murder Trial of the Last Lakota Warrior” during a presentation scheduled for Jan. 13. Both novels are set in South Dakota and are based in varying degrees on real-life events.

“The Last Ram” is set in 1903 in the Badlands, while “The Murder Trial of the Last Lakota Warrior” tells the story of a young Lakota warrior who stood trial for shooting an Army lieutenant in the aftermath of the Wounded Knee massacre.

Linstrom worked in state government for several years before becoming a full-time writer.
