March 23, 2013 It's All About Western Fiction from the Pen of Author Jim Christina
Author Jim Christina returns for a third visit to "Around the Barn" with his wife Gerry. We chat about horses and life on the Western frontier. Christina's latest novel, A Long Ride To Morning,
is a prequel to the Hunter Tales. In this new novel we meet good friends, Bobby Malloy and Jeff Styker, and follow their journey from "young men" to "manhood." Jim, as always, entertains us with the characters he's created and the stories they inhabit. Music from Tom Corbett, Tonight I Ride
and Mountain Saddle Band, The Heart of a Cowboy
. Hosts: Nancy, Bobbi Jean, Mike on the board.
Gathered in one book are the first three tales from the pen of local author Jim Christina. His main characters, Hunter and Jolly Goodman, are men of the 1880's. Here's how the author describes them in his debut novel:
In writing The Hunter, I tried to not only show some of the hardships that were endured but the real everyday lives of people in the 1880's. As now, people weren't throwaways. They had purpose in their lives and a sense of right and wrong, they had a sense of purpose and perhaps destiny. Even at fifty eight and seventy three the Hunter and Jolly were men with a zest for life and an ability to accomplish what few men were.
These men came alive for me. They became flesh and blood, bone and gristle. They bled when injured, drank too much and cussed like sailors but they are bound by an oath taken years before and never broken by either one.
I hope you enjoy the story as much as I enjoyed writing it.
