Rick Steber – Makers is my dear friend. He’s one of the GREATEST western writers of all time. He was a frequent guest on my radio show for many years and we’ve spent some good time together.
When I read this story I was stunned! Rick Steber is the REAL DEAL cowboy author and real deal cowboy. I hope you’ll read his post below and follow through with calls/emails/letters to those he listed. NO BOOKS should be banned. Especially great western stories.
I have almost all of Rick’s books in my library, my favorite being “Red, White, Black” the story of the three finalists in the 1911 Pendleton Round Up Rodeo. It’s riveting and absolutely true. Another that I love is “Little White Man” the story of a white missionary who came to the Oregon prairies to “save the red man” only to learn he wasn’t just saving them, but himself. It’s an amazing story and true!
He writes fiction too, but all of it is based on real people in the West. Please help Rick out!
