Book One ~ Tales from the Chimineas Ranch ~Humorous stories of wild cattle and wilder cowboys. The huge, remote Chimineas Ranch came to life in the seventies, but its lifestyle could have come from a century before. A hundred miles from Los Angeles, the remote ranch attracted a very particular type of man: he was talented, he loved the camaraderie of working with cattle, and had a special sense of humor. Above all else, these men had a passion for horses.
These stories, which include everything from Wild West rodeos and corral-adverse cattle to panicked bankers and lifelong friendships, are the collected stories of the men of Chimineas Ranch.
Sit back and enjoy the dry wit of the Chimineas Ranch crew as they honor the fine art of the practical joke, exchange tall tales, and keep the passion of horse-trading alive.
