Coleman book a good lesson, a good read

A book review


Dec. 4, 2013 —

Here are excerpts from online reviews of the book:

…This book of adventures is based on trust and love. Jane, a city girl, falls in love with a cowboy and is indoctrinated into the country life. She is challenged to ride horses and mules, climb fences, face snakes and become a cow girl. What drives her is not a quest for adventure; rather, it is love for her cowboy. High adventure with a sweet side!

…This book paints a colorful, insightful and humorous picture of a real cowgirl's life. Good and bad, dangerous at times, there are always lessons to be learned. Her style is easy to read, and this book is easy to get through. Jane, thank you

for writing such a delightful book. I feel I've been "on the range" with you.

…As many urban dwellers are presently flocking to the countryside to experience an authentic, organic and adventuresome life style, Coleman's eye opening encounters and reflective insights provide a dynamic portrait through a diary of events. Contemporary city gals and country cowgirls alike may enjoy Coleman's book and think of what life offers them if only they take a giant leap into the beauty and challenges of change.
