The Cowboy Way: Seasons of a Montana Ranch by David Mccumber
The Cowboy Way: Seasons of a Montana Ranch

thody, March 24, 2008

A wonderfully evocative read - highly recommended.

McCumber paints a picture of unbelievably long days, cold winters, difficult work and, initially at least, the embarrassment of not really knowing how to do any of the multitude of jobs that a ranch hand has to master.

As the book progresses though, his competence grows and he ends up reveling in the early morning starts and dirty repetitive jobs that enable him to live his life under the big skies of Montana.

In short it's the type of book that makes you look at your life and think about packing it all in to do something different. 99.9% of us don't of course, but we can live the dream through this beautifully written book.
