This is a collection of poems, stories, and prayers
straight from the heart of Roy K Hall, a cowboy who has seen it all. The pain of love lost, the joy of a grandchild’s discovery, the thrill of the hunt. Roy shares these and many more experiences of his life with gentle humour, startling honesty, and pure wonder. Roy’s stories are vignettes of his life’s journey; his prayers are heartfelt and spoken as if to a friend. His poetry is written with both tenderness and clarity. Every reader will relate to the joy he finds in his children and grandchildren, the sadness he feels when he finds himself alone, his orneriness when he plays practical jokes on his buddies. Roy’s straightforward, simple style will envelop you, the clarity of his voice will lift you up. Everyone has a little cowboy in them; these poems, stories, and prayers are sure to help you find yours!
Roy Hall was born in Oklahoma and has two children and seven grandchildren. He has worked all around the country primarily as a cowboy, but there’s very little he hasn’t tried.
