AN ACCIDENTAL COWBOY
Not long after Simon & Simon went off the air, the author was shot twice and left for dead on a street in Los Angeles. Physically, he recovered fairly quickly. Psychologically, however, the effects were far more severe and long-lasting, sending him into a spiral of post-traumatic stress disorder and depression. As a result, almost by accident, he ended up in a world of horses and cattle and ranching that helped him survive.
An Accidental Cowboy is the story of what it's like to have one's life go spinning out of control and how it is possible to pick up the pieces and begin again in an entirely different sphere. With stunning, crisp writing, remarkable detail, and a flair for description, it's a captivating story of loss, depression, and the beginnings of hope set against the backdrop of the American Southwest.
