If you are a western cowboy fiction fan, this book is for you. Uniquely written by the accomplished Western author, J.P.S. Brown, it tells the story in the first person of the short life of an orphan who began life as a foundling along the trail of cattle being driven to market in California from the rough high country and then through the lowland deserts of Arizona. Reared by the cowboys who found him, you will experience the ups and downs and close calls of growing up on the trail with a bunch of cowboys through the eyes of Dogie Long and learn about “cowboy ways”. You will add to your vocabulary of cowboy terms, both in American English and Spanish and experience the wonder at the world of a “lepe” who never knew a Mother, a school, a home, or much else that the rest of us take for granted. You will also learn why the full title of this book is “The Spirit of Dogie Long”. This book is thoroughly entertaining and the ending will touch your heart like nothing ever has before and make you stop and think. J.P.S. Brown has created an outstanding work of fiction again which he seems to do quite naturally, given the string of wonderful books he has written. But then again, that is what gifted writers who have actually “lived the life” do.
