About this title


The Proud Bull is a contemporary western about the way things really are in the west (at least for some modern day cowboys). When four young cowhands go on a wild maverick catching excursion in the 1980 s (not the 1880 s as one might expect) they are in for a life changing event that is filled with fun, pain, laughter, camaraderie, education and ending with a twist. Great illustration throughout help to bring the story to life.

About the Author:

Jim Olson was raised on a ranching operation in the high plains of Eastern New Mexico. Being raised on the high plains, Jim learned how to ride young colts, tend to cattle, and even drive heavy farm equipment at an early age. Jim has always enjoyed roping and spent a few years competing in the calf roping event at the PRCA level (even qualifying for the circuit finals a few times). Today Jim enjoys team roping with his family and attends a number of major team roping events throughout the year. Jim Olson is the owner of Arizona and New Mexico Ranch Real Estate, businesses that deal with Ranch, Farm, and Horse Property sales throughout Arizona and New Mexico. Today, Jim lives on and operates his own working ranch near Stanfield Arizona (which was once a part of John Wayne s Red River ranch). Jim loves to write stories about interesting and extraordinary people of the contemporary west, and finds that these types of stories are well received. Jim writes numerous articles and short stories both fiction and non fiction, and is probably best known for his monthly column titled My Cowboy Heroes . Jim s articles are published monthly by several magazines throughout the southwest, and have received national coverage also. Jim is a member of the Western Writers of America. In 2008 Jim published his first book titled My Cowboy Heroes Volume I and his second book The Proud Bull was released in October, 2009.
