In fact, I am named after him (kinda cool). Loved reading the inspirational stories about an ancestor of mine who overcame impossible odds to make a historic cattle drive from Canada. Not only that, he killed a wolf, helped stop multiple robberies, got second in a rodeo competition, rescued another herder from falling into ice at -20 F temperatures, and won a checkers competition.

    My husband's uncle wrote this book, based on a true family story (not my husband's, his uncle's). Ron is a good storyteller, and it's nice that he doesn't seem to be trying too hard to be anything other than a storyteller. For me, it lost steam towards the end--the description of the "big city" seemed endless, and other side plots could have been more developed (anyone know who the lady is pictured on the back of the book cover?), though I guess that the story was meant to remain centered on the My husband's uncle wrote this book, based on a true family story (not my husband's, his uncle's).

A lot of guys we know have made their sons read it, and I can why--there is an Old West feel to it (though set mainly in Canada) and Ron teaches some good principles about manhood without getting preachy. I'll probably make my son read it when he's older.

    This book is actually about my grandfather. When my uncle had him read it he was a little miffed. Uncle Ron exaggerated the story and made up some of the story so it would be a little more exciting. The part at the end is totally made up. But it was still neat to read about what life was like for grandpa.

    I did find this book pretty interesting, about a cattle drive in the middle of winter to Chicago. I believe the story is based on the author's father or grandfather. I did enjoy how he was able to capture their style of life - which I imagine is pretty much gone . . .

    For an old cowboy story, this one sure is descriptive! His relationship with his horse, his dad, and the cowboys are great. The whole story is an adventure from beginning to end. It's even better that it's true! For an old cowboy story, this one sure is descriptive! His relationship with his horse, his dad, and the cowboys are great.

    It was fun to read about what it would have been like on a cattle driver in the olden days.
