About the Book (Excerpts & Info)
Woodrow Brusk captured it all in central Texas back in 1873, the ranch, the wild horse herd, and the family that he and his wife Mary worked so hard for by pulling them together and making a home for them in that part of the country. Susy and Kyle grew up watching their folks succeed over the perils that wild open country offered. When Woodrow hired Lou Clepp, and Rodney Cline he figured the two drifting cowhands would be around for a long time. Lou proved himself to be worthy of Woodrow’s trust and moves up to help run the outfit when things were beginning to take off on the ranch.
Jake Brusk high tailed it to Texas as soon as he heard of the news that his brother Woodrow, along with Mary and the kids had finally settled on the ranch. He proves to the rest of the outfit that Woodrow has a kind sense of humor and helps pull the family and the outfit into the hay day market when beef was becoming easier to market off too distant states, with his steady tough ways Woodrow saw fit to have him run the ranch.
Mary’s brother and sister, Jess and Vance Prater made the journey from Kansas to Texas. On the cattle drive up to Anson Woodrow could have never guessed what Jess and Vance would bring to the table. Lou Clepp knew Jess could handle herself well, when he saw Jess in the hotel in Anson he knew he was falling in love with her. Bud Higgins rode hard covering Woodrow’s back! Justin, Bud’s father saw fit to let his last living son join up with his neighbor for the sheer respect he had for Woodrow.
According to Moran, “This story shot onto paper like a horse takes to the open range, in my life I have rode horses in wild country, looked over the same horizon’s as our earlier ancestor’s have and heard countless stories from real men and women of how life was in the time when Indians roamed free and the most reliable transportation was a good saddle horse. I felt a strong obligation to put these words into perspective, to draw a picture from this story- For all the hard work and fight for freedom that are passed generation had the privilege of living while taming the most beautiful and vivid aspect of humanity- The wide open Wild West."
