Coming of age in the rugged and unforgiving southwest may not suit the faint-of-heart, but it is the perfect landscape for a compelling and humorous memoir of a lad who endured a mid 1900's cowboy upbringing in rural Arizona and New Mexico.
Growing Up Cowboy chronicles the foibles and fortunes of its author, Ralph Reynolds (aka, Luna Kid), in an engaging and heart-felt fashion. From wrangling ornery critters to finding first love, the Luna Kid confesses all and regales the reader with vivid stories imparted with an abundance of wit and humility.
So saddle up and ride along as the Luna Kid introduces you to a helping of the Southwest's fascinating terrain and colorful characters. And, along the way shows you the irreverent side of adolescence adventure and the human side of growing up cowboy.
Growing Up Cowboy can be found on the shelves of the National Cowboy Museum Library and selections from the book have been reprinted by the National Cowboy Hall of Fame.

"In Growing Up Cowboy, Reynolds draws the wild beauty of his surroundings without getting trapped in clichés. Every loving description of the countryside shows his visceral attachment to the land of his birth". -Davenport Times, Iowa
"I find Reynolds' point of view and pace as a story-teller to be remarkable. This is especially true of the individual story "The Day of the Cougar" which simply taken by itself is a free-standing magnificent adventure story." Glenn Leggett, author of The Prentice-Hall Handbook for Writers
