I was a suburban kid Chicago area , but after college, with a degree in art, I moved to rural Missouri to begin life as a rancher. Forty years later I wrote this book, which is an accounting of those years.

It is written as fiction. The setting is in rural Oklahoma, rather than Missouri, because I love that part of the country. It is told from the point of view of a young man, and his experiences living in the country, working cattle, riding horses, as well as his junior and senior years of high school.

The story revolves around his best friend Colt, his sweetie Regina, their mutual friends and some who are something other than friends , and life as they know it. It is written with dry humor and reality—the events related life on a cattle ranch are true and accurate. I almost hate to mention this, but it is written as a series of fourteen line poems. Though in poetic form, it is meant to be read as a novel, from beginning to end. Me and Colt grew up in the country pretty far outside of town. We never spent much time with the other kids.

We never gave it much notice one way or the other. I expect we were the luckiest two boys in the world though I reckon other boys say the same thing. So yes, clutch your pearls folks, there is sex.

I was a suburban kid Chicago area , but after college, with a degree in art, I moved to rural Missouri to begin life as a rancher. Forty years later I wrote this book, which is an accounting of those years. It is written as fiction. The setting is in rural Oklahoma, rather than Missouri, because I love that part of the country.

It is told from the point of view of a young man, and his experiences living in the country, working cattle, riding horses, as well as his junior and senior years of high school. The story revolves around his best friend Colt, his sweetie Regina, their mutual friends and some who are something other than friends , and life as they know it. It is written with dry humor and reality—the events related life on a cattle ranch are true and accurate.

I almost hate to mention this, but it is written as a series of fourteen line poems. Though in poetic form, it is meant to be read as a novel, from beginning to end. Me and Colt grew up in the country pretty far outside of town. We never spent much time with the other kids. We never gave it much notice one way or the other. I expect we were the luckiest two boys in the world though I reckon other boys say the same thing.

These are but a few of the surreal, the weird, and the peculiar you will encounter in a realm few willingly tread…with or without the lights on.
