This book is the reason I fell in love with Pam Houston's writing, and with her heart. Each story is a glimpse into the challenges all human's face; the loss, the pain, the humor and humanity. The tenderness and toughness and the poignant, important differences between male and female friendships. I ADORE this book, like, one of the few things you grab in a fire, like desert island adore. This book was passed around a group of Expressive Therapists I worked with, we shared it with our clients, and ALL our friends. I have bought more than 15 copies of this book, and just lent out my last copy. No One, NO ONE ever wants to return it. Houston's incredible athleticism, courage, tenderness and openness, are both endearing, and encouraging. If you have never read her work, read this book. READ THIS BOOK ! It will touch you in places you've tucked deeply away.

This is one of my top ten favorite books.

Pam Houston is a gifted writer with a wicked sense of humor. She is a master of the short story genre.

When I first read this book, I thought cowboys were rugged and handsome. I've come to know this to be true.

Now, I am blessed to take their photographs for living.

A good short story is harder than you might imagine to write. Pam Houston does it best.

This is a good story based in real life and catches one by surprise. It's window into the life of some one we could all have to depend one day, The tow Truck Driver. This story is candid and told with feeling that reflects real life situations that are in some cases spectacular enough to appear in a movie and moving enough in the heroism of the leading charter to make the reader reflect. This is a good read for any looking for one of modern life unsung heroes, The tow Truck driver.

This review is for the W. W. Norton & Company paperback edition, 1992, 171 pages with 12 stories, eight of which were previously published in literary journals. COWBOYS ARE MY WEAKNESS is not listed on the USA Today's Top 150 Best-Selling books.

These stories are about "real men" who run rapids at high water, rescue one dog a year from the humane society, love white-tailed deer more than women, stalk Dall deer for the kill, and run fast away from commitment. They are also about the women who put up with these guys, written by a woman has, but only to warn her species. Pam Houston put on boots and took names.

Ladies, read this and laugh. You real men, read it for the profile of the woman you're looking for, but beware. Houston's got your number. You're country music, where "The men in the songs were all brutal or inexpressive and always sorry later."

Enjoy the writing style of Ms. Houston. The stories are varied and interesting depictions of life experiences. I am personally familiar with the geography of several of the stories and that amped their appeal.

One of my favorite books of all times. I have read it more than twenty times, but it still seems new every time. My girlfriends and I took turns reading the stories out loud by the campfire in Colorado when I first bought it back in the early 90's, and I just read it recently on a beach trip to Mexico with my husband on my Kindle - A totally different life now, but the book still seems so familiar. Read this!!!!
