A Cowboy Christmas An American Tale is a magical story that crisscrosses the expansion of the Western frontier and collides with destiny.

"IT'S GOOD AND IT MOVES! Tom Van Dyke tells a rousing tale of a young man learning how to cowboy and finding the girl of his dreams. I've written a good 40 western stories but learned a lot from Tom's book." --ELMORE LEONARD, Novelist

An American tale rich in history and vivid word pictures is told in a cowboy's flavorful soup of words with wit, grit, and humor in an inspiring adventure of discovery, strength, character and romance.  A Cowboy Christmas An American Tale has galloped into the hearts and minds of readers of all ages in an adventure that sweeps across the American Southwest --1873. Masterfully crafted, the story explores the lore of the western frontier when it was imagined to be as big and far away as the moon.

"INSPIRING! A Cowboy Christmas An American Tale reveals the true American West but goes even further. A man and woman who refuse to let a soaring relationship disappear is a sign of life on earth at its best." --MICHAEL BLAKE, Author of Dances With Wolves

A WESTERN ADVENTURE --A Cowboy Christmas An American Tale is a story about cowboys who burn themselves like candles for experiences worth living and values that created strength and revealed character. The tale begins just beyond the far bank of the Mississippi River and sweeps across the Arizona and New Mexico Territories westward to California gold.

WB, not yet sixteen, crosses the mighty river without fear and leaves the muddy shores of civilization behind. With empty pockets, a spark for life, and a wild sense of freedom, he follows his heart searching for adventure and fortune in a new world. Experiencing the harsh realities of the Great Plains, WB's roam takes a dramatic twist when he meets the love of his life. As they are falling in love and as fate has it, they are separated.  Crisscrossing the far West in search of each other, experiencing the perils of a wild frontier and western theater of unraveled characters, they discover a land bigger and more beautiful than any dream.

"A Cowboy Christmas An American Tale is a wonderful tale of a young cowboy's roam and a heartfelt love story. A great Christmas story and a delightful read for all seasons." --THOMAS COBB, Author of Crazy Heart

From the Author:

A bestselling novel A Cowboy Christmas An American Tale celebrating its expanded fifth edition, has galloped into the hearts and minds of: men, women and youthful readers. Considered for nomination of an Academy Award, Tom Van Dyke, a nationally recognized director and screenwriter, writes within the layered narrative and brevity for screenplays. In his first novel, A Cowboy Christmas An American Tale, Tom's tone, style and voice speaks volumes for simplicity. The historical depth, lush descriptions, unraveled characters, inspired moments and unforgettable dialogue captivates the reader s imagination from the first sentence to the final moment. Tom has created an original authentic tale for all ages of an adventuresome young man discovering himself during a magical adventure in the American West.

From the Inside Flap:

"I have a long trail of praise for the American cowboy.

Leafing through tattered pages of hand-written journals and dust-covered books, and wandering museums admiring masterworks of western artists, I looked beyond the golden frames as windows into America's past, and imagined what the restless spirit of the West was like one hundred fifty years ago for cowboys on the American frontier.

Inspired, I felt challenged to create a magical story that crisscrosses the expansion of the far West and collides with destiny--a story about cowboys who burned themselves like candles for experiences worth living and values that created strength and revealed character--a story as enduring as the romance of the West.

Embracing a cowboy's flavorful soup of words and expressions, WB tells his story with cowboy wit and humor. His tale begins in 1873. Not yet sixteen, with hope and dreams, he crosses the Mississippi, and without fear, leaves the far shore of civilization behind. With empty pockets, a spark for life, and a wild sense of freedom, he follows his heart searching for adventure and fortune and discovers the romance."
