A story based on a historical event... The west has been a lifelong interest of the author, as the den in his home gives ample evidence. A graduate of Butler University in Indianapolis, Gordon spent four years in the Air Force. While stationed at Greenville AFB in Mississippi, God made a huge change in his life. He has authored four books for family and friends, but "Ride, Cowboy, Ride" is his first formal publication. The discovery of gold in California in 1848 increased the need for quicker communication between the two coasts. Trains got the mail from New York and Washington, DC to St. Joseph, Missouri okay, but slow stagecoaches then took a long southern route to California. Three investors began the Pony Express -- a series of relay riders on horseback carrying the mail non-stop the nineteen-hundred miles from St. Joseph, Missouri to Sacramento, California in only ten days! In "Ride, Cowboy, Ride", Tad Rawlings pursues the love of a pretty seamstress amid threats and a showdown with the meanest guy in town. As the first rider on the Pony Express, Tad relied on God when encountering life-threatening situations with bandits and Indians on "the trail." Upon his return home, he found a truly surprising development. Where do I begin? Beautiful, intimate. Great insight into history as well as life and spiritual matters. The author amazes me with his ability to spin a tale. God has certainly "gifted" the author with a talent few people have. Quite a "wordsmith". Just remarkable. A book that demands a "re-read" just for the joy of the adventure. Charles T Bate Attorney at Law

The dime novel and dude ranch, the barbecue and rodeo, the suburban ranch house and the urban cowboy—all are a direct legacy of nineteenth-century cowboy life that still enlivens American popular culture. Yet at the same time, reports of environmental destruction or economic inefficiency have motivated calls for restricted livestock grazing on public lands or even for an end to ranching altogether. In Let the Cowboy Ride, Starrs offers a detailed and comprehensive look at one of America's most enduring institutions. Richly illustrated with more than 130 photographs and maps, the book combines the authentic detail of an insider's view (Starrs spent six years working cattle on the high desert Great Basin range) with a scholar's keen eye for objective analysis.

One bucking bronco. . . Oklahoma ranch hand Tyler Jenkins is too young, too sexy, and too damn wild to be tied down by any single woman--for more than a few steamy hours. . . One hard-working widow. . . Widowed rancher Janie Smithwick is too busy paying off her debts to play rodeo with a reckless young cowboy like Tyler--no matter how hot he gets her. . . One midnight ride they'll never forget. . . As a rule, Janie should be dating a man her own age, like her handsome neighbor Rohn--not the twenty-four-year old ranch hand he employs. But once Tyler gets Janie alone--held tight in his arms, pressed against his hard muscled body, burning with desire--the widow realizes that some rules, like broncos, are meant to be broken. . .

He's come back to Copper Ridge, Oregon, to keep a promise—even if it means losing his heart… Putting down roots in Copper Ridge was never Alex Donnelly's intention. But if there's one thing the ex-military man knows, it's that life rarely unfolds as expected. If it did, his best friend and brother-in-arms would still be alive. And Alex wouldn't have inherited a ranch or responsibility for his late comrade's sister—a woman who, despite her inexperience, can bring tough-as-iron Alex to his knees. Clara Campbell didn't ask for a hero to ride in and fix her ranch and her life. All she wants is the one thing stubborn, honorable Alex is reluctant to give: a chance to explore their intense chemistry. But Clara has a few lessons to teach him, too…about trusting his heart and his instincts, and letting love take him on the wildest adventure of all.
