Facing the perils of Wild West cattle-driving as Texas most famous trail boss

Posted: Aug 20, 2015 9:46 AM CDT

Author Clark Selby tells tale of leading 3,000 longhorns from Star Ranch to Dodge City in new book

KANSAS CITY, Mo. (PRWEB) August 20, 2015

Leading a cattle drive was one of the most exhausting and dangerous jobs available in the Wild West, but at least the longhorns didn’t try to kill the cowboy. Add fleeing from thugs out for blood to the process and the cattle driver is in for a rough time.

In Clark Selby’s new novel, “Indian Leader Trail Boss”, Indian Leader is so renowned for his skill during these drives that he is hired on to lead 3,000 longhorns across an incredible distance. The only problem is that by the time he arrives at the ranch, his boss has been murdered, and Indian Leader is forced to go on the voyage with the rancher’s daughter in tow while the murderous gang pursues him.

We love for our breeders to give promotional memberships to their prospective buyers!

These promotional memberships are good for 3 months and will hopefully encourage new breeders to join the TLBAA. When giving a promotional membership, it is important to ask if the account should be set up with ranch name or in the member’s name. If possible, we would like to have an address, telephone numbers, and an email address. 

Please take the opportunity of not only selling your animals, but to also mentor these new promotional members and offer them your wealth of knowledge and information about the Texas Longhorns. 

Let us know if we can help with this process. Call Rick or Dana with questions at (817) 625-6241.
