The Secret Life of Cowboys by Tom Groneberg
Tom Groneberg was a Chicago kid with a degree in English when he answered a magazine ad and got a job at a dude ranch leading tourists on horseback. He fell in love with horses and with a dream to be a real cowboy. He learned all he could about being a cowboy and left for a job on a ranch in Montana and marries his college sweetheart. Eventually he buys his own ranch, and he and his wife suffer through the turmoil of hard work, reluctant animals, and uncooperative weather. In The Secret Life of Cowboys, Tom Groneberg demystifies the legend of cowboys and reveals them to be regular hardworking people doing something they love. With an almost brutal honesty, he chronicles his own shortcomings, lessons learned the hard way, victories, and defeats. The Baltimore Sun says, "He has produced a book that shares certain qualities with the men he so admires. It's strong and honest and earns your respect."
