About the Book

The verses contained in this book were written over a long period, covering most of my adult life. And though they may sometimes not be pure in symmetry, meter, and are usually flawed compared to correct poetry, I’ve written what I’ve felt. I’m sure everyone has had these feelings at one time or another. Sometimes it helps to write down what you are thinking to preserve those memories. Time has a way of fading both the joyful and the sorrow, but being able to read your thoughts from long ago refreshes the memories.

About the Author

About the Author Jim West was born and raised in Texas. Following an unscheduled interruption in his college education, Jim served a tour in the U.S. Navy in photo intelligence. After that and college completion, Jim joined the U.S. Air Force as a pilot, retiring in 1989. Next, American Airlines lowered their standards and allowed Jim to be one of their family of pilots. Retiring after sixteen years, Jim began writing, and this is his fourth published novel. Finally, with ample time on Jim’s hands, writing became the primary focus of the spare time left over from running his ranch and competitive team roping. Telling a good story has long been a Texas tradition, even if it involves some fabrication of the facts.
