Everyone who rides through God’s creation longs for the romance John Wayne offers from the back of a Hollywood horse. However, the reality of those same folks’ ranch lives often hits them in the side of the head like the handle on a squeeze chute. The whirlwind of the modern-day cowboy life leaves seemingly little time for praying and even less time for sermons that don’t hit home. God needs to be real, and he needs to be found in the everyday, dawn-to-midnight struggles and joys of true-to-life, cow-feeding, bronc-stomping folks who live in a world where there are espresso shacks in feed-store parking lots. In The Cattle on a Thousand Hills, stories of genuine individuals who live life on the working end of a calf-puller teach lessons that only a real God can provide, set in the real world in which cowboys, horsemen, and ranch wives live. Combining true stories and life lessons with biblical wisdom, this book is at the same time humorous and poignant. Its pages will provide a look at life through God’s eyes that can be applied to anyone’s life, but especially to the folks who spend their summers cutting hay and their winters feeding it.

"Cattle on a Thousand Hills presents a history of cattle in Arkansas from the period of European exploration and settlement to the present day, when some of the finest beef herds in the country are found in the state. Dr. Brown focuses on the ranchers' and farmers' ways of life, explores the development of the various breeds, and describes how technological advances and the evolution of cattle marketing affected beef production in Arkansas." "Dr. Brown tells the story of the state's cattle industry in terms of the people who introduced new varieties of cattle to Arkansas, raised them, and led the associated supporting organizations. Included are chronicles of the Arkansas Cattlemen's Association and other organizations that have had significance in Arkansas's growing and dynamic cattle business: the Arkansas Cattlewomen's Association, the Farm Bureau, the Cooperative Extension Service, the Department of Animal Science at the University of Arkansas, and the Arkansas Veterinary Medical Association. Connell J. Brown's book is the definitive story of the people who built an industry currently worth half a billion dollars in annual sales."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

While their role has been all too often overlooked by historians, cattle played an integral part in the economy, ecology and culture of Highland life. Although many of these animals and their keepers have been abandoned in favour of sheep walks and deer forests, their legacy has remained through stories, paintings and songs. Infused by the author's own experiences of small holding at the end of the crofting era, this book offers an excellent insight into the social history and colourful customs assosiated with tending cattle on crofts, on shielings and on the drove roads of old, in an account that is populated by legendary figures, mighty beasts and characters larger than life. Perhaps most importantly of all, however, this is a history that looks to the future - a recent revival in cattle and traditional practices could pave the way for the truly sustainable agriculture practices so crucial to the fate of the planet at large.

Conrad Richter: A Writer's Life is the story of an aspiring writer who failed and then, desperate for money, tried again and wrote himself out of penny-a-word pulp magazines and into a Pulitzer Prize and a National Book Award. Based upon unrestricted access to all of Richter's letters, journals, notebooks, and private papers, this biography offers an intimate account of Richter's personal struggle to achieve success in his own and in other people's terms. Johnson's biography will engage anyone interested in the art of biography and in a novelist's act of writing. Admirers of Richter's novels will also find much of interest in his life. So, too, will those who find value in the story of a man who, despite his sense of himself as an imperfect vessel for God's plan for human evolution, lived his life with as much grace, determination, and courage as he could.
