Overview

Somewhere on the edge of a long-forgotten land called the Great Open, two fiercely strong-willed, all-American high school boys come together-forging a relationship hotter than the blazing Eastern Montana summer sun. Cash McCollum, a short-tempered, fifth generation rodeo cowboy, finds his simple, black-n'-white world bulldozed over by rich, handsome Travis Hunter, star jock of the football team. And what begins as a secret liaison between them, eventually stirs up into an impish, and sometimes humorous, whirlwind of gossip-awakening the small, sleepy town of Miles City. ".you 'n Travis seem to be slidin' into a real comfy corner." A corner that Cash's older brother, Clayton is not okay with. As time passes, and the friendship deepens, it's their extreme popularity that continues to attract a whole lot of unwanted attention-thrusting them from the closet into the middle of local limelight. From the beginning, the stakes are high with each risking a lot. Cash cannot lose sight of the rodeo crown title, All-Around Cowboy, at his fingertips; and Travis is dead-set on taking the football team to state championship-gaining the trophy of Most Valuable Player for himself as well. Compounding this star-studded drama, these two boys also discover their worlds are COMPLETELY different-with nothing to bind them together but an unbridled attraction and a fierce determination to make the relationship work. "We're comin' from two different cultures-can't you see that? Cash forces Travis to smell the roses. "You obviously come from money. I don't. I never will."It's Travis' persistence, however, that keeps them glued together. ".I can't live without you, Cash, because it's you. who makesme a better guy ."Under the Big Sky unveils a world that many overlook, or refuse to acknowledge. It is where the human heart beats as strong as ancient echoes of Indian drums along a mighty and untamed Yellowstone River. Within its pages, you'll be take

    I LOVED THIS BOOK AND WANT MORE!!!!!!!!!!!

    I read the first chapter in the advertisement and I was hooked. I had to order it immediately because I wanted to know what Cash and Travis were going to do. I loved the truth portrayed and the normalcy of their love and life. Mr Gonzales, keep writing. I have 3 friends who bought the book because of my love of it.

    Outstanding

    Not your typical gay teen love story. Excellent style and characterization. Unusually believable characters. This book will definitely go on my TOP shelf as one of the BEST gay-themed books I've ever read.

    Finally, a book worth reading!!

    Congratulations to Mr. Gonzales for this excellent book!! This is the most realistic, down to earth, and heartwarming story that I have read. Within the past year I have bought about 10 books this was the only one that I did not loose interest in after the first 30 to 40 pages. Kudos on the website, underthebigskybooks.com, for linking to 'The Trevor Project' which is a suicede hotline for gay and questioning youths.
