Love Lessons from the Old West: Chris Enss
Tom Rivers, a reporter for The Daily News in Batavia, wrote a first-person series about farm work in 2008 that won state and national awards. Now the series, with more background and other information, has been compiled in a newly released audiobook, Farm Hands: Hard Work and Hard Lessons from Western New York Fields.Rivers worked at a dozen farms in Orleans and Genesee counties, trying to find out why so few local residents are willing to work on farms. He discovered the work requires many skills, enormous willpower and physical strength. Rivers knew the jobs would be hard, but he didn’t realize just how grueling. He also didn’t expect the workers to help him get through the difficult work days. Rivers, 35, lost 40 pounds in 2008, and whipped himself into good enough shape to run a marathon. He compared that 26.2-mile run with cabbage cutting, and declared the farm work far more exhausting. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Douglas R. Pratt.

Lessons in Love - A Western Romance Novel (Long Valley Romance, #8): Erin Wright
(2003/And More Bears) 12 tracks 1956 (32:55) 16 page booklet (english). - Dickson Hall was born in North Carolina as Floyd Sherman Riley. He lived in the West during his teens and has studied folk music since his childhood. - Viele der Outlaws aus dem alten Westen sind längst unsterbliche Ikonen, etwa Jesse James und Billy the Kid. In den Texten der hier vertretenen Songs wurde der Versuch unternommen, all jene ´´Outlaws´´ historisch korrekt darzustellen. Heraus kam eine spannende, abwechslungsreiche Zeitreise durch den alten Westen. JOAQUIN MURIETA He was an outlaw of the Old West whose life has been so romanticized that it has become difficult to separate truth from fiction. His story as presented through the lyrics of this reaffirms the picture that has persisted through the years… JESSE JAMES Beginning his career with Quantrill’s guerrillas during the Civil War, Jesse James formed his own gang at war’s end and became an outlaw… possibly the most famous Western outlaw of American history. It is not known exactly how many banks and trains he robbed, but the number is roughly estimated at 17. That he ever gave any part of the $200,000 he obtained to widows and other poor people... BILLY THE KID (William H. Bonney) Born in New York City on November 23, 1859, Billy the Kid is supposed to have killed at least 12 men before the range war in Lincoln County, New Mexico brought him to national prominence. The facts of the early years of his life are difficult to pin down, but it is generally established that he killed his first man when he was just 12 years old. However, his career as an outlaw did not really begin until the spring of 1877 when the Lincoln County War got underway… BELLE STARR, The romantic treatment of her life by writers of novels and film scripts means that Belle Starr enjoys a reputation she does not deserve. Born near Carthage, Missouri on February 5, 1848, she grew up to be a crude, vulgar, and somewhat ugly woman who spent her life in the company of various outlaws, including the notorious Cole Younger. She reached the peak of her fame when she moved into Indian Territory (Oklahoma) and took up with Sam Starr, a half-blood Cherokee and cattle-thief. They were both finally sent to the penitentiary, sentenced by the notorious ´Hanging Judge´ Isaac Parker, for stealing a horse from a crippled boy… THE DALTON BROTHERS (Robert, Emmett and Grat) Law officers at first, the Daltons were related to Jesse and Frank James through marriage and were blood relatives of the Younger brothers. If the fate of their relatives taught them anything, the Daltons ignored the lesson… BLACK BART (Charles E. Boles) Born in Jefferson County, New York, Bart was the last of the great stage robbers, and became the most famous outlaw in California after the Civil War…
