poetryGritty Arizona/New Mexico borderland stories are told here in poetry.

Enclosed is a haunting experience about horses, cattle, drought and winter wind.  Read about dusty arroyos, burning sun, frisky fillies, foot-loose women, lace garters, jealous lovers, rattlesnakes and wind-broke mares. Hear the spur rowels ring, and know that Drum Hadley writes from his heart about desert valleys, bootleggers, chain saws, livestock inspectors and a hunted mountain lion who dies bravely at a place called Devil’s Hole.  Open to any page and enjoy this fascinating book full of surprises!
