Chuck Bowen and Mike Bowen will launch their new book, We Found the Lost Sand Creek Site, October 26 at the Cultural Events Center located in the Lamar City Complex in Prowers County. The program is at 6:30 p.m., with a book signing to follow at 7:00 p.m.  

There will be a sampling of artifacts on display including arrowheads, bullets, and cannonball shell fragments.

We Found the Lost Sand Creek Site is a detailed account about how Chuck and Sheri Bowen used eyewitness accounts to find places to search for artifacts on his family’s cattle ranch. It is the only book based on eyewitness accounts, discovery of artifacts, and how they affect the traditional Sand Creek story.

Bowen states that there are a lot of misunderstandings concerning Sand Creek, and the book provides clarity on information that has not previous been made available.
