I’m thrilled to be embarking on a twenty-day virtual book tour and look forward to meeting new and interesting people along the way while sharing my memoir The Horse Lover. Thank you very much to my hosts who have agreed to be part of this journey.
The Horse Lover: A Cowboy’s Quest to Save the Wild Mustang is my story about starting the first government-sponsored wild horse sanctuary in the United States. As a long time cattle rancher, I never in my wildest dreams thought I would be working with 1500 wild horses. As it turned out, the horses and I shared a four-year journey filled with adventures – some happy, some not so happy – that turned out to be the highlight of my career as a rancher and cowboy. Woven into the wild horse story are recollections of cowboying adventures astride some of my best horses – Little Joe, Aunt Jemima, Tequila, Blackberry and more. Each one taught me indispensable lessons about loyalty, perseverance, and hope.
During the tour, I’ll share my thoughts about horses, the West, the ranching and cowboy life and what I’ve learned from my experiences. You may laugh, you may cry, you may want to buy a pair of boots, a hat and a saddle, and go find a horse to call your own. Regardless, I hope whatever you find in these writings and interviews will in some way enrich your life.
Here’s how the tour works. Every day from now through May 2, I’ll visit a different blog or radio show. Below is the complete tour schedule. Visit the Virtual Book Tour page each day when a new link will go live. You also can follow via Twitter and my Facebook page. Leave comments, share your personal horse stories, and invite fellow horse lovers to travel with us.
Thanks for joining the tour. I look forward to hearing from you.
