This is one of the best little surprises I could have ever hoped for! It is without a doubt my favorite book of short stories now. I will keep it and listen to it again and again. I'm even going to try to get everyone I know to download this book as well. It's got something in there for everyone, not just cowboys! Some of the stories have more than one story line woven in. It's a book I wish didn't have to end.
This book is intelligently written as well as having the perfect mix of colloquialisms tossed in to make it authentic rather than corny. I also found that the author wrote from his heart. I think that's what I liked most of all.
Two stories stand out for me, Listerine and Britchin'. I loved them all but those two are the ones I quote most often when I tell someone about this book.
Typically I don't purchase shorter books because I don't feel I get my money's worth. But something about this book just caught my attention. I can't say why. I got this book because it looked like the author might actually know what being a cowboy is like in the American west. The title of the book was my first tip. While listening to it, it made me realize that not only is the author likely a true cowboy, but it's filled with stories that tug on every human emotion possible. Some of the stories are hilarious, some are sad, some are so tender and filled with heart that it just made me want to savor every word written. I laughed and cried and everything in between. What a wonderful little book!
Amazing this happened!
The narrator's performace was wonderful. I can't imagine having to keep that many characters in my head and keeping track of all of them while telling the story. Brilliant!
How corruption in our government can take anyone down
This is clearly an interesting read, I think I will buy the book so that I can flip back and remember who is who. There are many characters and trying to keep up with them all in an audio book was difficult. However, the story is great and the fact that something that immoral and corrupt can happen to such an innocent family by our own government is appalling! That tells me nobody is safe. Just lie low and stay under the radar and never say never. Bad things CAN and DO happen to truly good, smart, hard working, outstanding people. Makes no difference if you keep your nose clean or play by the rules. Very informative and quite an eye-opener!
