Dog Ear Publishing releases “Tyler the Cowpoke” by Joseph Louis Garces III.

This new illustrated children’s book set in the West presents an adventure appropriate for reading again and again.

A young cowpoke takes to the trail with his loyal dog and trusty horse Lightning, helping with a cattle drive. But the drive has its dangers, and when wolves decide to attack, can Tyler protect the herd? This new illustrated children’s book set in the West presents an adventure appropriate for reading again and again.

“Tyler the Cowpoke” describes Tyler’s life, spent in a cabin and caring for his family’s cattle. When he puts on his boots, silver spurs, chaps, an old cowboy hat and a bandana, he’s ready to drive cattle and round up strays. Another of Tyler’s tools – his lasso – comes in handy during the cattle drive. The adventure, told in rhymes, is appropriate for independent reading and read-aloud fun. Bethaney Abercrombie’s whimsical watercolor illustrations bring the story to life.    

This is the second book for author Joseph Garces III, who wrote it for his second son, Tyler. His first book was “Garrett the Firefighter.” Garces, a firefighter for the City of Oxnard, is a former elementary teacher with a degree in elementary education from Southern Utah University. He and his wife, Taira, have three boys. Illustrator Bethaney Abercrombie, a former art educator, has art education degrees from Brigham Young University and Northern Arizona University. She lives in Gilbert, Ariz., and has four children.
