This hilarious new novel by Americaís best-selling cowboy poet, Baxter Black, offers a funny, fast-paced inside look at the lives of rodeo cowboys and the women they love--or that they want to love. Cooney Bedlam is a saddle bronc rider and bull rider who has just fallen in love with the indefatigable Pica DeTroiT, but every time he tries to win her affections, he makes a fool of himself. When she's accused of illegal trafficking in endangered species, after being set up by the diabolical Oui Oui Reese, Cooney and his traveling partner, Straight Line, pull out all the stops to try to prove her innocence and to compete at the National Finals Rodeo.

Cowboy poet and large-animal veterinarian, Baxter Black, says "I was raised with the coyotes. No, this is serious. I was raised in New Mexico, did three years at New Mexico State University in Las Cruces, then four more years at Colorado State University to earn a Doctor of Veterinary Medicine degree. Veterinary school was hard for me. (The price of a gallon of gas was higher than my GPA!)

"Throughout the summers of my college years I worked at different livestock operations as 'cowboy labor.' To help support myself, among other things, I had a band and rode bulls. Upon graduation I practiced for thirteen years in the livestock business and would still be there if cowboy poetry had not hijacked my life.

"Since poetry is virtually illegal in the United States, I have had to work around the edges of the mainstream to make a living - outside the box, as it were. For thirty years I have been successful performing cowboy poetry (think of Shakespeare rather than Robert Frost) at venues across the country and in Canada. The greatest blessing in my business is that I have never had to solicit appearances. It has all been word of mouth.

"To augment my performances, over the years I have expanded into best-selling books, CD and DVD publishing, a regular column, a commercial radio program, National Public Radio appearances, cable television, and producing commercials.

"Our entertainment business, my wifeís and mine, began in Colorado. Twelve years ago we moved to Arizona to take care of my folks. I still have a heavy travel schedule and we have five employees in our office. We have a married daughter and a teenage son.

"We live on a small ranch close to the Mexican border and I punch cows when Iím not on the road. It ainít a bad life."
