To Be a Horseman

To Be a Horseman

from 22.49

By Gerald Beck. A memoir of the author's childhood on his family's ranch near Hydesville. Illustrated with watercolors by the author. He writes, "In the world I would have you recall, if something could not be done horseback, it simply could not be done. The sheer joy of being alive was experienced by going trout fishing in a mountain stream and then diving recklessly into an inviting deep green going picnicking or camping with your family...and to sleep out under the stars." Member Price: $22.50
