The second in Richmond Hobson's beloved a trilogy, "Nothing Too Good for a Cowboy," continues the adventure of cattle ranchers Rich and Pan. It is a story of hardship and endurance--of cattle drives, frozen faces, and marauding wolf packs. It is the story of the cowboy way of life--the starry nights and mountain air. And it is the story and mystery of the author's recurring vision of the blonde dream woman who broke into his solitary existence. Rich Hobson and his business partner, Panhandle "Pan" Phillips, have established themselves in British Columbia's wild interior as successful cattle ranchers. But their skills are about to be put to the ultimate test as a harsh winter arrives--and so does the Great White North's entrance into the Second World War. With intolerable weather conditions and a shortage of supplies, Rich and Pan will have to pull out all the stops in order to ensure the survival of themselves and their livelihood. From the celebrated author of "Grass Beyond the Mountains" comes a true adventure story, told by a natural rancher, pioneer, and storyteller.

Tremendous detail and action
I can not begin to think what suffering and hardships the author and the people he described went through. The book never quit, one wild and wooly segment after the other. They all made a person think and visualize the situation and how hard the conditions were. What a great book!
