Engaging and filled with perspective about life, “Memoirs of a Texas Cowboy” shares the good old days of author James Robinson as he recounts the details of his life story that took place within the comforts of the Texan ranch. In this riveting book, Robinson exposes both the exciting and the humdrum experiences of a typical all-American cowboy.
Adept with ranching since he was about six years old, Robinson became fascinated with the art of horseback riding, along with the many skills and virtues it can develop. Early on, he knew that all he wanted to do was to become a cowboy that very first moment he sat on a saddle. In his retrospect, he believes that despite the lack of material wealth found in horseback riding, he realizes that fulfilling his passion was more valuable. Having lived an exciting and extraordinary life, he had gotten to ride hundreds of miles and covered thousands of acres over the years.
His passion took him to mesmerizing places that people would not normally see from the highways. In this book, he recollects fun and awe-inspiring memories from his first ride to his first fall, from the hard but lesson-filled times of the ‘50s drought to the rewarding years of growing old as a Texan cowboy.
In 2003, Robinson was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis and could no longer get on a horse. Nonetheless, this did not stop him from reliving his memories through writing a memoir about his well-enjoyed life. Enriched with informative facts about ranching and peppered with humorous cowboy anecdotes, “Memoirs of a Texas Cowboy” will take readers on an enthralling ride as it sweeps from ranches of deep canyons, brushy flats, to creeks, springs, and high mesas.

About the Author
James Robinson graduated from Texas A&M in animal science. He learned a lot, but they didn’t teach him anything about working cattle, dragging calves, or how to get on a young horse. He learned all that at the “University of Hard Knocks”. It had been entertaining. He was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis (MS) in 2003. He is grateful for his dad who gives him the chance to follow his dreams.
