The Dirt Road Sport: Growing Up In Old Florida's Cow Country
eBook (ePub): $8.99
See life through the eyes of a young cracker cowboy growing up in Old Florida’s cow country during the 1940’s and 50’s. I put in thousands of miles on horseback chasing (and... More > sometimes running from) old Florida’s scrub cattle, (a mean and ornery bunch!). This was my life from age 8 until my early 20’s. I received a hard earned PHD in “Cow-ography” by the age of 15. Somehow I lived through being thrown off a horse at least 50 times; being bit, kicked, reared up and fell on, scraped off on trees, ran under tree limbs and yet came out all in one piece (well, more or less). After being married at age 17 and suddenly being responsible for someone other than myself; I started the long hard road toward achieving the American Dream. That road was rough and rocky, sometimes taking one step forward and two steps backward. From a penniless beginning, I am living proof you can achieve anything you can dream.
