I haven't quite finished this book, yet only started yesterday, and will finish today. It is a great story about a young man who can't figure out who he's supposed to be...a college student persuing writing, or a cowboy. He decides to try out his cowboy side, and moves west to learn ranching, bringing his college sweetheart with him. It has some sad undertones...you hope he can figure out who he is before he ruins himself and his wife. He can't have completed uprooted his whole life just to give up and lose it all can he? I can't wait to see how it ends.
Sweet story of a man who decides to quit college and work on a ranch in Colorado. He moves his girlfriend out to Montana, convinces his family to buy a ranch for him to run, and completes college. But in the end, he isn't sure if the ranch life is for him...you want him to either be in the decision 100% or get out.
Great book on the real inside life of ranching.
