Amarillo by Morning
At forty-two years old, former World Champion Bull Rider, Richard 'Stick' Slaton, is ready to climb back in the saddle. Driven by his own discontentment and desperation, Stick reenters the PRCA bull riding competition after twenty years. This isn't his first rodeo, but here the stakes are higher—the winnings are his only means to provide a lifesaving operation for his nephew, Bobby. In a race against time, he hits the road, making the local circuit and straddling one wild bull after another. From the time the gate opens, the only thing between life and death is the way he rides. In a bloody battle of brawn against bravery, he'll hold on...or die trying. With his back to a wall, the odds stacked against him, and Bobby's life hanging in the balance, Stick encounters the physical and mental anguish of heart-wrenching defeat, as well as the fame and glory of triumphant success. But neither measure up to the euphoric impact of love upon his life. Bruised but not yet beaten, Stick must make it to the national finals and Amarillo By Morning, where the fate of all will be decided.
