The Appalachian Cowboy: A Tarheel Favorite Son Goes Western (Paperback)
What was the real West like in 1879?
With this fictional work, the author has the reader smiling and feeling that he is back in early West Texas. A front row seat is provided for the unfolding exploits of a guileless but brave Junior Justus who is searching for his brother, Josh. With an innate innocence, Mr. Justus eliminates outlaws, befriends Indians, and guzzles whiskey with gusto.
Through these pages, he naively gets into numerous, awkward situations, but he always manages to prevail. Our unlikely hero engages in one of the most bizarre gunfights ever written into Western fiction lore. The Appalachian Cowboy is a different kind of Western and may be one of the finest of its type ever written. Purchase the book and decide for yourself.
The Appalachian Cowboy is the author's second published work. It is a follow-up to his highly successful first book entitled My Humor Heritage in Madison County and Beyond.
