Sit a Tall Horse


by Paul Hunter

Sit a Tall Horse is a journey into Paul Hunter’s crisply imagined landscape of cattle, horses, and hardscrabble men. A story about the worth of what is being left behind — lives immersed in hard work, inescapable weather and beckoning vistas, tempered with integrity and grit. But it’s not just that. Hunter is a master storyteller with terse but poetic language that will rope and ride off with your consciousness, into a place rife with real wisdom and a vision of how honest and vulnerable men are crafted and survive in a dying culture.”

— Luther Allen, author of The View from Lummi Island.

“Paul Hunter’s authentic voice sings with the rhythm of a slow, easy ride on a trusted cow pony. Full of campfire warmth, dry wit, and hard-won wisdom, these lean, poetic stories of modern cowboy life are for those who love horses, hard work, building better fences, flapjacks and leftover stew, and plain good story-telling. We follow the trail of honest Ben Wilder, learning about horses, humans, and cattle along the way, as he then steps into the firelight and becomes ranch boss, just as time starts to catch up with the K-Bar.”

— Susan Chadwick, writer, journalist, & former art critic for the Houston Post.
