The Reluctant Cowboy

by Garcia, Elizabeth A.


This is a story about a young cowboy named Jed Peterson. It's a tale set in West Texas about being lost and being found, saving and being saved. It's about bull riding and horse training. It's about being different, being tough but at the same time, gentle; and it's about staying true to ourselves, but more than anything, this tale is about the enduring power of love.

Garcia has lived for more than thirty years in the Big Bend country of far west Texas. She has hiked, rafted, explored, and earned a living in this wild desert-mountain land near the Rio Grande, on the border of the United States and Mexico. It was experiencing the deep canyons, creosote-covered bajadas, and stark, jagged mountains; the wide-open spaces and dark, starry nights that eventually brought her to writing.

The Reluctant Cowboy is Ms. Garcia's third novel. It is unrelated to her first two novels, which are part of the Deputy Ricos series.
