From the Oakley foothills comes a cowboy writer who not only rides the range but writes on the range, you know, like a lot of people that grew up in agriculture. I always wanted to play cowboy. Cassia County President Paul Marchant has just published a new book called Musings of a Would-Be Renaissance Cowboy. Well, we’re fortunate enough to have a book published. It's on Amazon. It's basically a collection of of columns that I've written over the years. I've been doing this now for over 10 years, and I've had a lot of people kind of encouraged me to do it. Marchant's critically acclaimed column, Irons in the Fire, is the basis of the book, its cowboy lifestyle writing that's landed him a legion of coast to coast readers. Used Baxter Black as a reference point. I'm not Baxter Black, but but that kind of stuff, you know. So it's perspective. It. Yeah, right. And it's and that I'll do case I'll write a feature for them and uh and I like I, I wrote year end market report kind of stuff like that, but most of it. But every so there's three magazines was four that I have a column in every month that I have to write a different one for each magazine and all the best columns have found their way into the book. And that's led to a bit of added fame. And it just amazes me that people are just recognizing recognize me from my picture in the magazine. I have a dear friend in South Dakota that I met. I was walking down in the yards in the national western in Denver. And he he quoted a line from something, something I'd written. And I turned around and, you know, just because he recognized me as I was walking by. And since that time he's visited me and I've been out there and, you know, we've become good friends and. A lot of other friends and fans have bought the book and it's doing well.
