Denver resident J.G. “Jerry” Swedlund was born and raised on the South Dakota prairie, not far from where his book, Rustler on the Rosebud, is set. At an early age, he experienced cowboy life during roundups at his grandfather’s ranch near the White River. As an adult, Swedlund traveled the world, serving in Vietnam and Germany as a Lieutenant Colonel in the U.S. Army and working for 30 years in Europe as a program manager focused on information technology.
