Cowboy Now : Life and Death in the Dim Light of a Patagonia Snow Cave.

In January of 1996, nine men from separate parts of the world-America, Canada, Chile, and Britain-ventured into the Patagonian mountains. Cowboy Now : Life and Death in the Dim Light of a Patagonia Snow Cave.

Cowboy Way - Paul H Carlson. Few cowboys went up the trail more than once or twice. 1. Myth and the modern cowboy. The term cowboy is an old one. In America in its earliest use, according to James Wagner, who has studied its etymology, it referred to cattle thieves, to Tories who fought with the British in the American Revolution, to other people held in low esteem. According to Wagner, the first reference to cow-boy (as it was then spelled) in an American dictionary defined the word simply as a boy who tends cattle.

Cowboy Sexy (now Cowboy Fiance) was one of my earlier reads from Donna Michaels. Cowboy Payback was set up very well in Finn and Cammie's story and I wanted to know what happened with Trisha and Brett. It is very funny, but covers some serious topics as well about military members adjusting back to "regular" society after being in war zones and dealing with stressors most of us will never know.

She was named one of Time Magazine's 100 Most Influential People In The World in 2017. Carlson was the 1989 Miss America while representing her native state of Minnesota. She graduated from Stanford University with honors before embarking on a career in television

In January of 1996, nine men from separate parts of the worldAmerica, Canada, Chile, and Britainventured into the Patagonian mountains. Their goal was the second west-to-east crossing of the Northern Patagonia Ice Field, the fourth largest ice field in the world. Patagonia is world-renowned for some of the worst weather on planet earth. Three weeks into a scheduled five-week expedition, and directly in the middle of the ice field, the team was attacked by a massive, unrelenting blizzard. Their tents were destroyed and supplies were dwindling as they clung to life in snow caves for two agonizing weeks, slowly starving while they battled for their lives.

Carlson describes core survival, drastic change, and self-examination, all while trapped in a man made snow cave for two weeks in a horrendous South American blizzard. The resulting novel is a fast moving, stripped raw, symbolic mountain journey about survival, struggle and change. Numerous climbers in the region died during the blizzard.

this book kept me reading. i could not put it down. I was so lucky to be reading the coldest book in the world next to a warm fire. When you read it you will know what i mean by the coldest book in the world. It really makes you think. I recommend every teenager in america to read it and stop and think. Wow.
I received this book as a gift in the mail yesterday from someone that never sends me books. After the first couple of paragraphs I wasn't sure but 6 hours and 200 pages later I am a true believer. Looking back I love the true story of survival and I needed the connection to life improving behaviors. Most "motivational" books are total crap and simply tell you to try harder and you'll succeed. They are not worth the paper they are printed on. To use this amazing story to identify some specific behaviors and how they will impact your life is simply brilliant. Almost every company I know would be better off if all of their employees were asked to read this book.

The fact that Brett is a novice writer, and uses a unique style works in his favor. He hasn't produced a formulaic mountain of drivel that is the same as all the other books out there. I think that innovation either thrills people or they hate it - and the fact that reviewers have either given him rave reviews or horrible ones is evidence that he is has completely succeeded in bringing together something amazing in Cowboy Now.

This is not simply a great story - but a great lesson to the 90% of us that could use the occasional kick in the butt to remind us that in order for great things to happen, we will have to make some decisions and step in to action.

Thanks for this story - I recommend this book to all people interested in the numerous ways we go through life.
As a slow reader I picked up this book last night thinking I'd skim a few pages to see if this kid could write. Considering I was up until 3:00 AM because I absolutely could not put the book down, I decided Carlson could write like birds can fly. His descriptive, casual style puts the reader right next to him on this harrowing adventure. Anyone who has the good fortune to experience this story will have new found respect for both Mother Nature and the human spirit. And as I sit in my mass-produced office cube, sleep deprived and finding it hard to stay focused on work, I think to myself, "well....at least I'm not in a snow cave" and it makes me feel a thousand time better. Sincere gratitude to the author who reminds us all that if we take care of "Today", the rest will follow.
...I congratulate Brett for having the patience and the courage to bring his story to the masses- and a fine story it is.
... I will say that I think that he could have made a longer novel with the amount of working content he had. I wasn't turned off by his naming scheme, and Brett clearly eases the reader into the idea so that we get comfortable with the switch early on.
All in all, it works as a quick and interesting read for all. Good times.
Great Book.....but, it reads like a novel, so it should be the lengh of a clasical novel. my one complaint in the book reads to quick. go from 200 pages to 400 pages and you'll get my 5 stars.
The author uses very simplistic vocabulary and repetitive style. Due to stylistic sloppiness, the read is unintentionally ridiculous on almost every page, greatly damaging the suspension of disbelief for this true story. By avoiding character complexity, Carlson attempts to create mythological prototypes, but falls short of bringing the book to the level of an epic. I would have enjoyed this much more at the age of ten, if it weren't for occasional strong language and adult content.
My office read this book for motivational reasons. I read lots of books and newspapers and other things - at first, I figured, no, don't have the spare time. Until I picked it up and finished it over a Saturday and Sunday and was very, very impressed. For entertainment, I read the other reviews, it looks like the author has got under the skin of some 'disgruntled women' and they can't get passed his persona and look at the actual book!
AS a former student at Los Gatos High where Brett and I attended school, I decided to spend an hour or so at my local book store reading this book. . It reminded me a little bit about a book I enjoyed reading in the 5th or 6th grade of a teenager who is separted from his group on an expedition and is stuck in a snow cave for 3 or 4 days without supplies, including water. I was so fascinated with this book, though I cant remember the name, that I read it straight through on rainy day. However, I think more mature audiences will be disappointed. THis book, save for a little bit of foul language (nothing that teenagers aren;t accumstomed to and not what I would consider damaging or profane) would be best targeted at the 10-14 year old age range. In reading other reviews, I noticed that a lot of people indicated problems with reading or that they generally did not read, which, from a purely academic standpoint, I think this book may have appealed to them. It is a very easy read, maybe too easy, and lacks in depth and form that a more educated audience may find frustrating. AS for the life lessons, they are good ones, which is why while not recommending it to adults, I would recommend it to a pre-teen or early teen. I hope this helps!
