Winner of Will Rogers Medallion Award.Finalist, High Plains Book Award.He already owned and managed two ranches and needed a third about as much as he needed a permanent migraine. That's what Alan Day said every time his friend pestered him about an old ranch in South Dakota. But in short order, he proudly owned 35,000 pristine grassy acres. The opportunity then dropped into his lap to establish a sanctuary for unadoptable wild horses previously warehoused by the Bureau of Land Management. After Day successfully lobbied Congress, those acres became Mustang Meadows Ranch, the first government-sponsored wild horse sanctuary established in the United States.The Horse Lover is Day's personal history of the sanctuary's vast enterprise, with its surprises and pleasures and its plentiful dangers, frustrations, and heartbreak. Day's deep connection with the animals in his care is clear from the outset as is his maverick philosophy of horse-whispering, with which he trained 1,500 wild horses.The Horse Lover weaves together Day's recollections of his cowboy adventures astride some of his best horses, all of which taught him indispensable lessons about loyalty, perseverance, and hope. This heartfelt memoir reveals the Herculean task of balancing the requirements of the government with the needs of wild horses.The book is published by University of Nebraska Press. The audiobook is published by University Press Audiobooks.Praise for The Horse Lover:"An instant classic." (Booklist)"A great American story, and an inspiring tale of vision, courage, and hard-won wisdom." (Larry Watson, author of Montana 1948)"Sure to become an instant wild-horse classic in the spirit of J. Frank Dobie." (J. Edward de Steiguer, author of Wild Horses of the West) 1. Language: English.

The Pecos Kid Western #1, July 1950 , Hörbuch, ...

In the post-World War II era, Popular Publications was slow to launch new magazines built around a single character. But when they did, they went completely out of the box. Captain Zero was one of those. In 1950, with the pulp era dwindling, Popular put out The Pecos Kid Western. He was, in the words of editor Mike Tilden, "hardly a regulation Western character". What did Tilden mean by that? Simply that here was a hero who was neither a steely-eyed pulp stalwart, nor a rodeo-shirted Hollywood trick-shooter - both infallible crusaders for justice, but about as realistic as the Lone Ranger. The Pecos Kid was really William Calhoun Warren, late of Texas and the Confederate Army. After the Civil War, he set out to make an honest living, assisted by his saddle mates Big Jim Swing and Hernandez Pedro Gonzales y Fuente Jesus Maria Flanagan. The series was created to reflect the shift toward more mature Western films, which had been growing on Hollywood over much of the 1940s. It would reach its zenith with such cinematic classics as Howard Hawks' 1948 epic Red River, along with High Noon, Shane, and The Searchers, all just around the corner from 1950. According to author Dan Cushman, The Pecos Kid was actually inspired by The Cisco Kid. "The editors at Popular asked me to write a series on a character they devised called the Pecos Kid, a sort of a spinoff." In his debut novel, Riders of the Gunsmoke Rim, Bill Warren and his comrades have just finished driving a herd of cattle up from Cheyenne to the untamed town of Miles in Montana Country when they muscle into a hornet's nest of hate and... but you can hear all the ruckus and ruction for yourself as Milton Bagby narrates Dan Cushman's bullet-torn tale ripped from the pages of Pecos Kid Western, July, 1950. Also included is a novelette by one of the the Pulp West's major stars, Harry 1. Language: English. Narrator: Milton Bagby.

A Short Season: Story of a Montana Childhood
16,90 CHF *
zzgl. 3,50 CHF Versand

A Short Season is Don Morehead's bittersweet story of growing up on a Montana ranch during the 1940s. In 1941 his parents eagerly took up residence on a ten-thousand-acre sheep ranch in northern Montana. The entire family was soon caught up in the natural rhythm and grueling work of ranch life, meeting those challenges with energy, patience, and humor. The driving force behind the ranch and family was the father, Bill Morehead, the 'hub around which activity spun'. Don especially was drawn into his father's world, rarely leaving his side, and becoming known as his 'small partner'. When his father died suddenly in 1948, Don was left with lingering, irreducible grief and loneliness. Replete with marvelous details of ranching life, Don Morehead's story is also a sobering and moving meditation on childhood and the special relationship that can develop between father and son. Morehead returns us to the quiet surprises of the first short season with our parents and helps us better understand the inevitable sadness of moving on.

ggf. zzgl. Versand

Dynamite Time presents a story within a story. Theodore Stone unexpectedly receives a letter from Julie, his nine-year-old granddaughter, the daughter of his estranged son. Julie's letter, as part of a school assignment, innocently asks, 'Did you ever get into trouble when you were little?' Theodore responds with a 'to be continued' story that entices Julie into more letters. An exchange of fourteen letters tells the story of himself, as a five-year-old boy named Tad, with a Shetland pony named Dynamite. He takes her back to 1948, on a farm in rural Montana. A time when Tad wants to be a cowboy more than anything. The ongoing letters spin true adventures, both good and bad, about Dynamite, chores, mean farm animals, one-room school houses, fights, rodeos, and a variety of boyhood experiences. The exchange becomes an important part of Theodore's and Julie's lives, creating a friendship. As the stories continue, Julie's dad also becomes interested in the life of the father he never knew. This arouses hope in the empty life of Theodore. Then Julie writes, 'Daddy said that you abandoned him. I have to know. Did you?' Reluctantly, he tells Julie a final story of an older Tad.

BOOK DESCRIPTION: The best-selling author of Montana 1948, Larry Watson spins an unforgettable story of obsession and betrayal, set against the stark backdrop of rural Wisconsin. Like so many women who crossed the lonely Atlantic before her, Sonja Skordahl is told that she will have a new life in America. Yet once she comes to this country, she soon finds herself defined, like so many other mid-twentieth century women, by her roles as mother and wife. She marries Henry House, a third-generation orchardist, in picturesque Door Country, Wisconsin, and together they set about the business of raising their two children. But tragedy soon interrupts that placid life, and out of a desperate concern for her family, Sonja agrees to pose for Ned Weaver, an internationally acclaimed artist. Under Weaver's gaze, Sonja gains a new identity. Her beauty has always made her an object of desire, but now she becomes a muse as well. When both Ned Weaver and Henry House insist on possessing her, their jealousies threatening to erupt into violence, Sonja must find a way to placate both men without sacrificing her hard-won sense of self. Obsession and possession, art and responsibility, the varieties of love and beauty--Watson weaves his provocative themes in prose both lyrical and rugged. Orchard has the drama of a classical tragedy and the texture and subtlety of an Impressionist painting.
