“There’s often a story about cattle, a little talk of environmental concerns, and a mention of his “Princess” and her collaborative work with him. That’s how conversations go when I get a chance to visit with Bobby.

This latest book is just like sitting down and visiting with Bobby. You’ll enjoy every bit of it.”
