Synopses & Reviews
Richmond P. Hobson Jr. (1907-1966) was born in Washington, DC, where he worked with pack outfits, survey crews, and construction gangs, saving, all the while, to buy a cattle ranch. He came to Canada after the stock market crash of the late 1920s. He and his business partner, Panhandle "Pan" Phillips, moved to the interior of British Columbia and established the Frontier Cattle Company in the 1930s. He later married his wife, Gloria, moved to Vanderhoof, British Columbia, and continued ranching while writing about his experiences. Other books by Hobson are Grass Beyond the Mountains and The Rancher Takes a Wife.
A true adventure story of a man who built a four-million acre cattle empire in the remote ranges of the British Columbia Interior.
The second in Richmond Hobson's beloved a trilogy, Nothing Too Good for a Cowboy, continues the adventure of cattle ranchers Rich and Pan.
It is a story of hardship and endurance--of cattle drives, frozen faces, and marauding wolf packs. It is the story of the cowboy way of life--the starry nights and mountain air. And it is the story and mystery of the author's recurring vision of the blonde dream woman who broke into his solitary existence.
Rich Hobson and his business partner, Panhandle "Pan" Phillips, have established themselves in British Columbia's wild interior as successful cattle ranchers. But their skills are about to be put to the ultimate test as a harsh winter arrives--and so does the Great White North's entrance into the Second World War. With intolerable weather conditions and a shortage of supplies, Rich and Pan will have to pull out all the stops in order to ensure the survival of themselves and their livelihood.
From the celebrated author of Grass Beyond the Mountains comes a true adventure story, told by a natural rancher, pioneer, and storyteller.
