Dedicated to all who live the honest cowboy way of life, where one’s word means what it says, and a simple handshake binds a contract.
“Tall in the Saddle is a well-crafted story by my friend Steve Johnson, one that will engage ‘young’ readers of all ages – from five-years-old on up to ninety-five – the same way Will James did for me when I waws a kid growing up in the West. I highly recommend this book for wnyone who has dreams of ever ridin’ Tall in the Saddle.”
– Buck Brannaman
“Tall in the Saddle is a humorous and heartfelt story for young and old, where one can’t help but feel like a player in it. Steve Johnson proves he can paint colorful stories with words just as well as with brushes.”
– Jennifer Dennison, Senior Editor, Western Horseman Magazine

I got this book for nighttime reading with my 8 year old grandson, we both loved it.
This book is such a delight to read! Filled with stories of the Johnson family adventures and life lessons. Wonderful writing that makes you feel as though you were sitting by the campfire listening to these stories. Beautiful illustrations by the author, as well. As the book progressed I realized that I even know some of the people mentioned! What fun! I could not put it down!
