The Tri-State Livestock News reported: “You can almost hear the flies buzzing in the race-track restaurants he describes, and you’re gripped by the electric tension in the atmosphere as his equine heroes dash for the wire.

Paul E. Patterson retired from a career in ranching in New Mexico and Colorado to devote his time to writing. His stories have been featured in Western Horseman and New Mexico Magazine.
