When the Lazy B Ranch is sold as a victim of the computer age, it seems that J.L. Crockett's way of life as a cowboy in the United States is finished. So he decides to pack up and move to Argentina, where ranches are still run by human beings.
As J.L. begins a cross-country journey to Miami so he can board the ship to South America, he meets Karina, another soul chasing after an elusive dream. The two join together in a wild and crazy trip where they encounter evangelists, con artists, thieves, ghosts, and drug lords as they bond together over hardship along the way.
Will J.L., with Karina, make it to his next destination or will he really be The Last Cowboy?
I really enjoyed this well-written rom-com. It was quick and nicely paced with interesting characters. Well written and fantastic narration!
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. The fact that I was gifted this book had no influence over my opinion of it.
The Last Cowboy by John Isaac Jones is a lighthearted romantic comedy. As J.L. states in the beginning, you won't believe the story of he and Karina, his wife, and how they first met. This was a cute story with a lot of unique happenings, which I've come to expect from Mr. Jones. I enjoyed their story, although nearer the middle/end it did seem to go on and on a bit and I did get somewhat bored, though it was still a fun story overall. I enjoyed the ghost, the plane ride and some of the other over the top aspects of the story that just made me laugh out loud. I won't go into detail, as I don't want to give away the story, although I will say that you do get your HEA at the end.
I thought Richard L Walton was perfect for the narration of this book. He sounds like a cowboy and though J.L. looks young on the cover, he is telling the story of how he and his wife met, so it's going back in time, therefore having an older sounding J.L. fits the book perfectly. I would recommend this book for someone wanting to listen to a cute, clean, unbelievable story of two people meeting and falling in love on a cross country adventure.

The story kept going. And going. And going.
The narrator seemed to be going for gruff and tough, but being from a backwoods area, everyone sounds that way. Even some of the women. He literally put me to sleep one time. Glad I wasn't driving, because I drive two hours a day and listen most of the time.
The beginning actually states that the story will be unbelievable, so reader be warned out the gate. Great. Now I'm talking like this guy.

I wasn't very fond of this book. I just couldn't get into it. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
This was the longest work by John Isaac Jones that I have had the pleasure of listening to, and I was not disappointed. Mr. Jones has a definite way with words and it is so easy to get pulled into his stories.
In this story we take a cross country trip with JL, a cowboy who has lost his job, and livelihood, at the Lazy B Ranch due to technological advances.
The narration by Richard L Walton was fantastic. His voice was absolutely perfect for JL.

I greatly enjoyed The Last Cowboy by John Isaac Jones. This was a fun rom-com from the author. I was most familiar with the authors work from his brilliant short stories. This audiobook was the perfect thing for a quiet afternoon when I need some laughs. The description of the story is pretty accurate and I do not want to spoil the story. If you enjoy any of the author short stories this is a must-have purchase. I highly recommend this audiobook.
This is the first time I have heard a performance from Mr. Walton but he really delivers a standout job with the narration in the audiobook. I would look forward to hearing more from him in the future.

I was surprised I enjoyed this book as I normally do not listen to romance books and it is not overtly sexy. This is not just a romantic story but more of an adventure of a couple running into exceptionally nice humans and a couple not so nice ones from Montana to Florida. I enjoyed the characters of JL (the cowboy with great morals) and Karina as they develop friendship then love. Recommend to anyone who enjoys easy listen stories with good narration.

I am a romantic through and through. I like cowboy tales but what got my attention was how love found its place in a heartbroken cowboy and a spunky gal. JL and Katrina certainly had a time.
Narrator was great. Exactly what a cowboy's voice should sound like. Plus, he told the story well which keeps your interests.
I recommend this book. Well don!
This is one of my new favorite books. It is an adventure and a life journey right from the beginning. It is a wonderful story and a good lesson too. I believe in karma and this book shows how important it is to create good karma by being a good person. J.L. is a very likable character and could teach a lot of men how to be men. Karina was just what he needed in his life. Their story was exciting and the people they met along the way were interesting. Mr. Walton was perfect to tell this story. He gave a fine performance here. I enjoyed this book very much. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
Good book by JIJ. and one of the longest I have read from this author. John Johns writes amazing short stories. He has a away of really grabbing your attention and dragging you into the story. Even if the story is 15 minutes long.
This was funny book. had me giggling, and always, he did an excellent of grabbing my attention on this one as well.
This was my first time hearing anything from Richard Walton. He was awesome! and I would listen to him again anytime.
