Nearly 70, Wes Hendricks has led a tough and colorful life as a cowboy and broncobuster, and all he asks now is that he be left alone on his poor, hardscrabble ranch in the West Texas hill country. Not a chance - the powers that be in the little town of Big River (including Wes' old cowboy pal, druggist/Mayor Orville Levitt) have decreed that an artificial lake will be created to generate tourism, and Wes' ranch stands squarely in their way.

I was skeptical at first because it was of a more recent time. But after listening to it , it is my favorite book, and I have listened to several hundred westerns. Highly recommend it, you won’t regret it.

Author keeps dwelling chapter after chapter on underage girls wearing very little clothing that turns on the main character. Gets old fast. Also way too much time on baby care and annoying baby sounds.
