Colorado Moon by Jim Jones

I just finished reading Colorado Moon, a western novel written by my friend, Jim Jones.  If you like novels about the old west, you’ll like Colorado Moon.  The story takes place around Cimarron, New Mexico during the time of Indian raids, crooked politicians and folks who think everything is theirs for the takin’ if they’re mean enough.  It’s about boys who become men overnight, women who are tougher than folks think they should be and life.  The story is about hard work, friendship, loyalty, love, threats, fear, danger, intrigue, frustration, hope, death, acceptance and plans for a better future.  It’s all there!

The writer’s description puts you in the story.  You can feel what’s going on.  It is well written and fast paced…and you’ll like it!  If you have not read Rustler’s Moon, I recommend you do.  You’ll get to know the characters a little better, but whether or not you read that one first is up to you.  Both books, Rustler’s Moon and Colorado Moon are available at www.Amazon.com.  Just search by the title and the author.  It’s very easy!  I suggest you do it today!

Tyrone Cowboy Poetry & Music Gathering

May 7, 2011 found us on the road north to Tyrone for their annual Cowboy Poetry and Music Gathering. We arrived just in time for the last song from the Copper Creek Wranglers.  I’m sorry we didn’t hear more…they were very well received by the audiance!  We did, however, hear great Cowboy Poetry throughout the day from Bud Strom, Lynn Stokes, Pete Kennedy, Hook Hill and Mike Moutoux.

Along with the talented poets were equally talented western singers and musicians!  We were privileged to hear Jim Jones, Jim Wilson, Eddy Harrison, Jon Messenger, Washtub Jerry, Doug Figgs, Mike Moutoux and The Copper Creek Wranglers Cowboy Band.  I had not heard Doug Figgs before so that was fun. He’s a really good singer that filled in at the last minute for one who could not appear.  He did a great job with very short notice!  The entire day was fun!  I look forward to next  year.  If you are close and have never been to the Tyrone Cowboy Poetry & Music Gathering you’re missing a lot of good entertainment and fun!  Make plans to attend next year!
