Single father, Weston Parker is set in his ways, and raising his daughter is his top priority. But his ten-year-old feisty little girl is growing up faster than he ever realized. Her go-getter attitude is one he's seen before--mainly on himself. When she starts trading in her ponytails for makeup, Weston realizes he just might be in over his head.<br /><br />Dedicated and driven veterinarian, Timber Sellers always knew that she'd head back home, but she wasn't quite ready for it to happen so soon. Running into the stubborn and bossy Weston from her high school days doesn't make it any better either. But when she meets his spunky daughter, Timber knows she's right where she's supposed to be. As Timber grows closer to Weston's daughter, his rough exterior softens. Suddenly, the heat between them explodes and neither can deny the attraction. Weston always goes after what he wants, and this time, he wants a future with Timber.<br />

"...During that spring of 1880 the Chisholm trail was impassible for large herds, as 'fool hoe-men' had squatted all over it..."<br /><br />Siringo, "an old stove-up 'cow puncher,'" has written in "A Lone Star Cowboy" an account of his 50 years' experience on the great Western cattle ranges as Cowboy, Detective and New Mexico Ranger--- on every cow trail in the Wooly Old West, spanning Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, New Mexico, Colorado, North Dakota, Montana, Wyoming and Nebraska.<br /><br />Now that the cowboy is almost extinct outside the movie lots, those who knew him as he really was are beginning to correct the false impressions that have been conveyed by the flood of cowboy fiction and Wild West films. Here is given the true story of many thrilling adventures on mountain and plain, among moonshiners, cattle thieves, tramps, dynamiters, and other strong arm men, when the cowboys, buffalo hunters, and Indians had room to come and go, before the wire fences cut off the trails. His story includes first-hand accounts of his encounters with some '' Bad'' Cowboys, such as '' Billy the Kid," Wess Harding and '' Kid Curry.''<br /><br />Siringo introduces the book, stating: "This volume is to take the place of 'A Texas Cowboy'. Since its first publication, in 1885, nearly a million copies have been sold. In this, 'A Lone Star Cowboy,' much cattle history is given which has never before been published."<br /><br />It is a cow-boy's book; lively, spirited, energetic, slangy, and coarse; a book with a great deal of courage, adventure, roughness, and incident; a book which gives a life-like picture of cattle raising; and one that is full of the flavor of the " Wild West," but which is rude company for people with the tastes and refinements of civilization. <br /><br />“Among the enduring western master storytellers is Charlie Siringo, cowboy, detective, author, whose career and writings still live in the psyche of millions of westerners today.” Howard Roberts Lamar<br /><br />Cow-boys will read it as it is with zest; the more refined and sensitive "higher grade of readers" may protest that it has not been purged of its sins against grammar and good manners. It has an underlying substance which is excellent.<br /><br />Charles Angelo Siringo (1855 – 1928), was a Cowboy, New Mexico Ranger, Justice of the Peace, detective and agent for the Pinkerton National Detective Agency stationed in the West out of Denver. His first book A Texas Cowboy; or, Fifteen Years on the Hurricane Deck of a Spanish Pony was published in 1885, establishing his reputation as a writer selling over a million copies. Nearly 25 years later he updated "A Texas Cowboy" by publishing his 1919 book "A Lone Star Cowboy" which includes not only his career as a cowboy but also a western detective cleaning up the Wild West and much cattle history which had never before been published.<br /><br />Contents<br />I.

In <i>Fried Twinkies, Buckle Bunnies, & Bull Riders,</i> award-winning sports journalist Josh Peter takes readers along on the Professional Bull Riders tour to witness the death-defying confrontation between man and beast that has made bull riding the fastest growing sport in the world. Success in this sport is measured in seconds--staying on a bull for 8 seconds without getting tossed is likely to secure the rider a big score. Josh Peter captures the high drama of the sport and introduces readers to a culture that's rife with colorful characters: courageous riders, scouts, breeders, love-struck groupies, and a few of those very angry bulls.</p>

<p><strong>"Readers looking for inspiration (or just a great story) will discover a wild ride that proves just how twisty some paths to Christ can be." - <em>Publisher's Weekly</em></strong></p> <p>Many of us would say it takes guts and a little bit of crazy to step toe-to-toe with a powerful, 1,700 pound bull. For Hall-of-Fame bullfighter, Jeremy Sparks, it took faith.</p> <p>Sparks' remarkable and illustrious journey began at a young age when he received a God-given calling to become a professional bullfighter. Soon after accepting a college scholarship for rodeo, he suffered a near-fatal electrocution, which, but for his faith in God, would have ruined his dream. After three years of training under a world champion, he was accepted into the elite Professional Rodeo Cowboys Association, and spent years tussling with raging bulls until God, once again, showed him another path.</p> <p>While the terrorist attack on September 11th rocked the country, Sparks saw it as an invitation to serve. He enlisted just weeks after the attack, and earned his commission as a second lieutenant in the US Air Force and an endorsement from the Pentagon as the "only professional bullfighter in the history of the USAF."</p> <p>Once a small town kid from Arkansas, now a Hall-of-Fame rodeo icon, Sparks is sharing his stories of strength and service. With God at the center of this fascinating story, <i>Go West</i> highlights the 10 Biblical principles that Sparks learned, experienced, and lived by as a professional bull fighter, officer in the armed forces, and follower of Jesus Christ.</p>
