This piece is from my book "Charlie Two Hearts" book one.

Jim was 20 years old now and was liked by everyone who met him. He was kind to all people and animals and was never afraid to do a days work on the ranch. He was five feet nine inches tall and his body was hard and lean.

Page 8

His eyes were frozen in a squint like many western drovers. As the only child of Big Brad Willis he could have been the ramrod of the entire operation but he chose not to. He could handle the job alright but he didn’t think he deserved it yet. He could have shirked some of the work onto some of the other fellows too but he always seemed to do more than his share. Jim lived by the cowboy code which was taught to him by Phil West. With a quirley hanging from the corner of his mouth and one eye closed to avoid the smoke Phil had said.
“Jim, don’t ever try another mans hat or horse without asking, work hard, always tell the truth, be kind to animals and children and don’t spit or cuss in front of women.”
Jim took the code to heart because he looked up to Phil. Jim Willis turned into a fine cowboy that other cowboys respected.
