The great adventures of life begin in imagination!
Gary Harmon's The Broken Spur weaves a fictional tale of a way of life that evolved as it moved across the country.It illustrates
events which defined the life of generations of Americans. His story is written in the same drawl that taints his speech to this day,
and why not? The narrative is colored by the sounds and voices he grew up with. His family operated a large stockyard in southern
Indiana where the language of cowboys, breeders, and trainers regaled the stories he loved to hear. His early life was informed by
the fact that he handled horses and cattle daily and rode those skills right onto the pages of The Broken Spur. Amid the tall tales
and bald-faced lies contained in these chapters is an honest picture of the hard realities of life on the frontier.
Colt Maverick: Elizabeth Rice is missing. Rather than dealing with the police, her secretive husband hires Colt Maverick, a private
investigator. What he finds along the way is a trail of miscues, secrets, and deceptions. Maverick is also haunted by his own past
and current celebrity. Mount Gibson Country Club is the key to this case, but attractive women and the club's staff send him through
a maze of discovery.
Author Cary Ashby provides readers with a bonus story. Following the novel is a prequel, Why the Sheriff Hates
Colt Maverick. The title says it all.
