Last call for entries to the contest for Lorelei James’ newest release, Corralled.
While I’ve got your attention, if you’ve ever wanted a visual image of what cowboys these days endure (yes, they do still exist) or want to see what Lorelei’s characters endure, you might want to tune into a show I’ve been watching the past month or so over on The Discovery Channel’s Animal Planet: The Last American Cowboy.
It follows three ranching families in Montana, the different challenges they face and how they face them — you might be surprised at some of the new modern day equipment replacing the good old fashioned horse. and how some of the old-fashioned habits die hard.
I’m not generally a fan of “reality” shows but this one isn’t a Jersey Shore or Big Brother type show. It’s gritty and harsh and something anyone who has lived in the country and harsh elements can relate to. And if you live in the city? Well, these guys are just as stubborn and mule-headed as the characters in any novel, and just as heroic.
