“The next year, when Evan told his ma he wanted to tame a wild horse, she said he wasn't ready. But Cully thought differently.
"The boy's going to be running your spread soon enough, ma'am. I think he can break that filly if he has a mind to do it."

Evan smiled when he recalled that day. The horse had thrown him four times. He was scraped and sore, but Cully wouldn't let him give up, not even when the horse bucked him over the corral fence. The cowboy laughed until tears streamed down his face.
"I didn't know anything without wings could fly that far!" he exclaimed.”

“In the long winter evenings Evan and Della sat by the hearth and listened to the cowboy's tales of his life on the trail.
"After a long, hot ride we finally camped at Red River. Cookie had our beans boiling in the pot, when an ornery steer got stuck in a mud hole. No one wanted to get him out, so they volunteered me for the job. I lassoed him and my horse gave him a good pull. Now you'd think that longhorn would have been grateful, but when I set him loose, he chased me around camp like I was a Spanish matador. He finally stopped when a pretty heifer called him over for a kiss."
"Maybe that bull was just trying to say thank you," Evan said. "If you had stayed put he might have kissed you instead!" And the cowboy laughed.”

“The boy came to know all of Cully's friends through the stories he told. He longed to meet each one, and he always asked about them.
"What about Lucky Lefty? Was he with you this season?"
"Yep," Cully said. "And he's luckier than ever. One stormy day we were pushing the herd over Barker's Pass. Lucky and I were riding together, and to while away the time, he was telling the story of Noah and his animal ark. He was just to the part about the forty days and forty nights when, out of nowhere, prairie lightning flashed down from a cloud and struck him right on his chest."
"Was he hurt bad?" Evan asked.
"It knocked him straight off the back of his horse, but he lived. He's got a long scar to show where the lightning hit him...on his left side of course."
"Maybe the Lord didn't like the way Lucky was telling the story," Della said with a smile.
"I'll warn him about that, ma'am," the cowboy said, smiling back.”
