Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 140100377X, Paperback)Hube Yates takes us on a trip in this book - a trip that begins with a move from Oklahoma to Arizona in a covered wagon.Then he takes us back to Oklahoma for a visit in a car. "Oh, it was a chore," he says, as though the covered wagon trek, complete with renegades, was easier.He won the Carnegie Hero's Medal when he was a fireman in Phoenix. The joy and descriptive vernacular which he uses to tell about his adventures and misadventures is an experience to lift readers out of the doldrums.All of Hube's experiences are true. His life was centered around horses, and that led to many a strange situation.So loved is Hube Yates that executives from the East flew to Arizona to go on trail rides with him. So trusting were parents that they allowed their children to ride horseback with him on his annual 200-mile trail ride from Cave Creek to Heber, Arizona. His influence is an inspiration and, at the same time, entertaining.To know him is to love him. To read his book is to heighten one's awareness. It's a good trip.
