Horsemen are exposed to the inclement weather; hot summer heat, stinging sweat in the eyes, and spring mud up to the knees winter. Not to mention, breaking the ice on the water pails, snow falling, and ice storms. But, these inconveniences pale in comparison to the spiritual enlightenment received spending every day with a horse.
In the west, cacti grow abundantly while trees remain scarce. The hills become mountains when you are chasing a cow across the Sonora southwest. As the ground clears from the lack of rainfall in the summers, small thickets of shrubbery get so dense it’s hard to see where they start and stop. These are the areas where the hardiest of wild cows survive and are the most difficult to catch. Mathew takes over his father’s ranch when he is tragically killed.
“Anyone who raises himself up will be humbled, and anyone who humbles himself will be raised up.” Mathew 23: 1

Many of us cannot recall the old western shows on radio and television, where thrilling endings were prompted by “Tune in again next week to see…!” The Stage Robbery, by Anna Elizabeth Judd, brings us back to these great old days, where hero and villain alike take us through suspenseful moments of, “Will the Posse find the Marshal?” or “Will the Outlaw Gang get away with another crime?”
The Old West, a notorious outlaw gang and a well scripted crime all come together in The Stage Robbery, which represents one work in a series of “soon to come” thrillers. The “Good Guys”, tracking a kidnapped Marshal and his deputies, are one step closer to solving the crime and rescuing the Marshal…or are they? Again, we see lawman pitched against the bad guy. Again, we are welcomed to join in on the adventures of Haystack! But, we’ll have to tune in next time to find out as Judd takes us through the first chapter of this classic western tale.
In the meantime, for those that appreciate the classic days of westerns and tales of the Old West…or for those who want to go back in time to the good old days for the first time…read The Stage Robbery and be prepared for anything! Tune in next time until the next review…until then!
