Download and read online Southwest Cowboys Volume 2 in PDF and EPUB Stallion Tamer She was the youngest Dononvan sister. An innocent beauty whose sweet, trusting nature had once opened her heart to hurt. He was a loner. A man more comfortable around horses than people. A wrangler with a gift for taming even the most savage stallion on the Donovan ranch. When Jessica Donovan came face-to-face with Dan Black, every feminine instinct told her the rugged ranch hand was the man who could heal her wounded heart. But first she had to show the brooding cowboy the soothing strength of a woman's touch — and prove that she was indeed his destiny... The Cougar She had a heart of gold and a beauty to match her spirit. But she was a Donovan — the daughter of his arch enemy. He was strong and true, and something of a hero in Rachel's hometown. But years of strife between her ranching family and his made Jim Cunningham the one man she was forbidden to love. From the starry night he'd saved Rachel's life on a snowy mountaintop, Jim felt bound by this compelling woman. And though the rugged rescuer had faced many battles in his day, loving Rachel would be the greatest challenge of all.

Download and read online Stagecoach to Tombstone in PDF and EPUB The true story of the American West on film, through its shooting stars and the directors who shot them... Howard Hughes explores the Western, running from John Ford’s 'Stagecoach' to the revisionary 'Tombstone'. Writing with panache and fresh insight, he explores 27 key films, and draws on production notes, cast and crew biographies, and the films’ box-office success, to reveal their place in western history. He shows how through reinvention and resurrection, this genre continually postpones the big adios and avoids ending up in Boot Hill...permanently. Major films covered include the best from genre giants John Ford, Howard Hawks and John Wayne, plus classics 'High Noon', 'Shane', 'The Magnificent Seven' and 'Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid'. 'Stagecoach to Tombstone' makes many more stops along the way, examining well-known blockbusters and lowly B-movie oaters alike. It examines comedy westerns, adventures ‘south of the border’, singing cowboys and the varied depiction of Native Americans on screen. Hughes also engagingly charts the genre’s timely renovation by Sam Peckinpah ('Ride the High Country' and 'The Wild Bunch' ), Sergio Leone ('Once Upon a Time in the West') and Clint Eastwood ('The Outlaw Josey Wales' and 'Unforgiven'). Presented too are the best of western trivia, a filmography of essential films - and ten aficionados and critics, including Alex Cox, Christopher Frayling, Philip French and Ed Buscombe, give their verdict on the best in the west.
Download and read online Unbridled Cowboy in PDF and EPUB Unbridled Cowboy is a riveting firsthand account of a defiant hell-raiser in the wild and tumultuous American Southwest in the late 1800s. At the age of fourteen, Joe Fussell hopped trains to escape from school and the authority he scorned. Joe became a roving cowpuncher across the Texas territory, tilling the land, wrangling cattle, and working in livery stables, moving on whenever his feet began to itch. In a time and place with no law, the young cowboy took it upon himself to exact revenge on those who trespassed him. Joe recounts tales of cowboy adventures, narrow escapes, undercover work as a Texas Ranger, and life on the railroads. A spark of his wild cowboy spirit remained even after he went to work on the railroads and rose to the position of yardmaster. Joe's unadorned prose is as exposed and simple as the wide, open Texas plains. His unpretentious, unique voice embodies the spirit of the old West.

Download and read online South West Climbs in PDF and EPUB A selection of fine rock climbs from Cornwall, Devon, Somerset, Dorset and Jersey 500 routes from 40 main areas are selected in this guide, and finding the cliffs, which is no simple matter in the complex topography of the south-west, is greatly eased by clear location maps. Routes descriptions are supported by diagram, or photo topos, and many are illustrated with action photos. The focal point of the area is the magnificent granite climbing of the western tip of Cornwall, which offers routes of all grades set against a splendidly turbulent ocean backdrop. The quartzites and lavas of Cornwall's north coast offer major climbs with a sterner character. Further east, the Culm Coast pf Cornwall and Devon border have climbs with curious sculptural appeal, and to the south the cliffs near Torquay and Swanage are surprisingly testing with an almost mediterranean ambience. Add the remote charms of Lundy, the tors of Dartmoor and Bodmin, the sheltered faces of Avon and Cheddar and the Granite cliffs of Jersey and the Scilly Isles and the diversity of the area becomes apparent."
