I am vociferously passionate about good books. And I hate adverbs.
This story took a huge bite out of my heart, chewed on it a bit, and then spit it out. And then, again. I kept coming back for more.
There is beauty here, so much beauty.
The people. The men. The horses. The outback. The red dirt.
Walker comes running through these pages screaming with love for this land. And I cannot but scream too. It is exhilarating. Filling. Uplifting. And it is so well written it is like I was sitting right there watching it all unfold.
Top-notch horsemanship. Good husbandry and well researched work situations on a station. Shining, real, and heartbreaking secondary characters, to back-up the main story.
With absolutely stunning storytelling, Walker is sailing through this one, and I am so in love I cry happy tears at the end, when I see that there just might be a Red Dirt Heart #2 in the works.
Charlie and Travis have strolled right into my heart, and have hung their hats there.
“Horses should do a lot of things. Coming home alone ain’t one of them.”
This book is a Head Up, Heart Out kind of book of the very best kind.
I feel like I can both breathe deeper, and stand taller after reading this.
It has simply made me happy.
I bought this book from Smashwords. You can too.
