Read full description of the books Anything for Billy:Sure, I'm in a wild-west phase. It's easing my slow withdrawal from my own desert life as a wilderness guide.
"Anything For Billy" is good literature.
Read it flying through the air over the sagey deserts east of Phoenix. Look down between pages and think about what it was like to bump along over the gullys of New Mexico on a sweaty horse swatting flys. No 5 dollar snack boxes, just the occasional stringy jackrabbit or feathers-in-your-teeth Prairie Chicken - and they were ecstatic for it. Joy, joy. Think about what ascetics these range riders were, giving up everything else, just to wake up in a wild place under the moon or sun with the imminence of weather and animal.
McMurty understands the difference between what we like about the legends of these adventurers and what they loved about their own wild lives.
Oh, can I have that wonder again!
