About this title

Synopsis:

John Furman Haley lived from 1897 to 1972, from wagon roads to superhighways, from chugging locomotives to rocket-powered journeys in outer space. He was a West Texas rancher, and his attitude epitomized the creed of western ranchers and cowboys of his time. He moved no mountains, toppled no governments, or built any empires; yet he was an embodiment of the character and spirit that creates the distinctive aura which identifies those proud individuals who value freedom above all else.

In this warm and often humorous memoir, Haley’s son, himself a rancher, captures the image of a man known for his extraordinary self-reliance, endless energy, and willingness even eagerness to meet any challenge life held in store.

The volume is illustrated with original drawings by western artist Duane Breyers.

About the Author:

John A. Haley has followed in his father's footsteps and cowboyed all his life, throughout the Southwest. He and his wife, Stefanie, now make their home at the Old Place, the ranch near Kermit, Texas, where his parents married. This is his first book.
