Our selection for February is “The Log of a Cowboy:  A Narrative of the Old Trail Days” by Andy Adams. It is an account of a five-month drive of 3,000 cattle from Texas to Montana during 1882 along the Great Western Cattle Trail.  Although the book is fiction, it is based on Adams’s own experiences, and it is considered by many to be literature’s best account of cowboy life.  Adams was disgusted by the unrealistic cowboy fiction being published in his time; “The Log of a Cowboy” was his response. Originally published in 1903, it is still in print, and even modern reviewers consider it compelling. We will meet via Zoom on Friday, February 19 beginning at 11:30 if you wish to join us to chat over lunch and the discussion will start at noon.  Contact the church office for Zoom information.
