Pat Jacobs will be returning to Dodge City, Kansas, over the Thanksgiving holiday to sign books, cd’s and to visit with old friends. Come meet the Kansas man that has lived and breathed the cowboy lifestyle on Saturday, November 27, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Hastings Books in Dodge City.
A perfect stocking stuffer for this holiday season is Pat’s second novel, “The Chameleon Rancher.” This intriguing book is set in Kansas on the backdrop of the Great Depression and the ole’ Dust Bowl era in 1941. Since Jacobs lived it, including riding cutting horses in a race for the World Championship of the National Cutting Horse Association, he used actual characters, with made-up names, from his huge bank of memories for this book. He has woven colorful individuals into a backdrop of actual events with fictional, yet believable, cowboys and ranchers, plus a dash of love, sex, drama and human frailties.
If you haven’t experienced the tales of Pat Jacobs, don’t forget to pick up a copy of his first novel, “Outcasts, Outlaws and Second-Chance Horses.” Now in its second edition, this book continues to receive praise and recognition including his latest honor, the 2010 Will Rogers Medallion Award. Famed writer Tom McGuane says that “Outcasts, Outlaws and Second-Chance Horses,” is “for anyone wanting to know what cutting looked like when it still had the hide on… and was still an outdoor sport.” That was over two years ago and this book has become a bookshelf keeper to all that have enjoyed its pages.
Please join Pat on November 27, for an afternoon of cowboys and their horses as only he can share. Can’t make it? Visit Jacobs online at www.patjacobs.com.
