Southwest Texas Ranchers

by Jerry Snodgrass


Book Details

Illegal immigrants are coming across the border into Texas ranchers’ land.

At forty-four years old, Steve Barker—a former Army Ranger, professional rodeo roper, steer wrestler, and oilfield roughneck—turns to owning and operating a cattle and horse ranch in Southwest Texas. He is driven by his love of the cowboy life to find peace after his wife and little girl were tragically killed in an automobile accident. His Sandy Creek Ranch, located near the small town of Red Mesa, Texas, is overrun by illegal immigrants coming across the border from Mexico. They destroy his fences, break into his ranch house, and threaten his ranch hands. Steve meets bank vice-president, Jada Tobin, a beautiful blonde-haired widow who owns property across Sandy Creek. Steve and Jada eventually fall in love, and together, along with neighbor ranchers, fight the drug and human smugglers who threaten their livelihood as ranchers.
