Fifty Years Handling Horses takes the reader on a trip from the tobacco fields, the okra patches, the cane breaks and plantations of south Georgia to Louisville, Kentucky and Cold War Germany where looking good was the name of the game. Fifty Years Handling Horses is entertaining and educational. The author explains how tobacco, okra and sugar cane was harvested and how hunts were conducted on plantations. Serving in Germany takes the reader inside the workings of a peace-time military. The author takes the reader on security jobs with Pinkertons Inc. working crowd control at football games, golf matches and horse races. Then its on to Montana training horses guiding guests into wilderness areas- cowboying, freelance writing before moving to New Mexico and retirement. Fifty Years Handling Horses has plenty of tension of unhappy jobs- conflicts of personal relationships- sorrow of putting down horses, hilarity of hunting and fishing trips and the warmth of a camp fire, storying and visiting with friends and family. Fifty Years of Handling Horses has something for everyone who has worked as a cowboy and those who have dreamed of doing so.
