"The best men I've known have been cowmen. There's a code they live by - it's their way of life. It starts with an abiding reverence for the good Lord. They're taught to honor and respect their parents and to share both blanket and bread. Their words are their bond, a handshake their contract. They're good stewards of his creation, the land. They believe the words in his book.
Learn from these men - from their stories of triumph over tragedy, victory over adversity, for the wisdom of others blows where it wishes - like a Louisiana wind." (Daniel Hubbard Willis, Jr., 1900)
This is the story of such men....
From master storyteller Randy Willis, an action-packed Western saga inspired by a true story.

Yes, I have listened twice already. It is a great book and the narrator has that kind of voice that makes him a great story teller.
The other Louisiana books by the same author. Same style of writing.
The telling of the mom who set out the money, whiskey and Bible to determine her son's fate. She decided he would be a politician.
Many times I laughed out loud.
Definitely, the mood and tone were very realistic
These all seemed like real tales. Read more like a memoir of a great man, not a novel.
I can imagine this is actually what they sounded like. Slow and laid back as befitting the time and local.
Great little book as a follow up to Three Winds Blowing and even 12 Years a Slave.
Pretty high. Lot's of interesting topics in such a short book. The period shortly after the Civil War is not something I have read about before.
Three Winds Blowing. This is a continuation of the family history.
Not really. Each chapter is a little complete story so you can stop after each if you want.
Good little book. I thought the narrator did a pretty good job of sounding authentic to the time and place.
