Buck and the Blue Roan
by Stormy Kurtz
Elvira Parker, a spoiled, alcoholic teen from Chicago, has been sent to spend the summer on her uncle’s Montana ranch. While there, city girl Elvira meets handsome Buck Eagle Plume, a biracial cowboy filled with bitterness over the death of his parents, his horse and his dream of becoming a rodeo champion. Buck accepts a job on Elvira’s uncle’s ranch in the Bitterroot Valley in Western Montana.
While working for Ellie’s uncle, Buck becomes enthralled with a rogue blue roan Quarter Horse mare. He is determined to tame her. She is determined to stay wild. Eventually, Buck becomes one of the top team ropers in the Bitterroot Valley, causing conflict with his corrupt arch rival. As events continue to turn against Buck, Ellie gets into trouble of her own. To save Ellie and himself, he must rely on his courage and the spiritual guidance of his Native American ancestors to save her.
