With eager anticipation I opened the book and was consumed from beginning to end. “Hey, baby, this is America.  It’s a free country.”  Even for those who would never admit it, everyone (both men and women) loves a cowboy.  Bringing up visions of the sweat-covered hottie out on the tractor or the Wrangler-clad bull rider on television, the cowboy is the all-American fantasy. 

Henry Dunn, “The Last Cowboy,” reads like a crazy man.  He puts the best of them to shame.  Beginning with a duel where both participants, he and the sheriff, were both barely able to stand, much less shoot, Henry starts a killing spree which really never ends.  Rarely showing any heart, Henry is a cold, cold, uncaring man.  He is consumed by the fact he wants to return to his girlfriend in Kansas.  None-the-less he relieves his stress by bedding prostitutes whenever available.  One encounter left him with more than he bargained for; killed the mother and now caring for the child.  The Kid, barely a toddler, learns the ropes quickly and almost instantly becomes the cowboy’s partner in crime.

Both serious and down-right hysterical at the same time, this book is worth the read.  From dance class to tae kwon do, I carried the book around for days while my daughters attended classes.  When asked what I was reading, I would giggle and say, “I am reading ‘The Last Cowboy’ a book about a drunken cowboy that could have been written by a drunken cowboy.”
