John Herold, a retired mechanical designer for various defense contractors, watercolor painter, and married father of two grown daughters, has completed his book “The One-Legged Cowboy”: an engrossing tale of courage, grit, and loyalty on the western plains.

Cowboys in the Old West were usually very young men who faced many perils, such as nervous wild longhorn cattle, drowning, stampedes, and lightning. Many were East Coast Civil War veterans who headed west looking for any kind of work. Cowboys slept under the stars in all kinds of weather and developed a close comradery with one another. They would fight to the death for a friend. A trip to a saloon once a year for drinks, gambling, and women was their only entertainment. An old cowboy with a peg leg did not stand a chance. His days were over.

Published by New York City-based Page Publishing, John Herold’s riveting novel introduces unforgettable characters and brings the Old West to life for the modern reader.

Readers who wish to experience this gripping and potent work can purchase“The One-Legged Cowboy” at bookstores everywhere, or online at the Apple iTunes store, Amazon, Google Play, or Barnes and Noble.
