When trying to "trade up" remember...

It's one thing to get all you want in life. For example: big ranch, lots of cattle, pretty horses, fancy truck and so on; it's another to learn to enjoy life and be happy. Few get the first part accomplished, fewer yet, ever figure out the second. Most don't realize that being happier than a puppy with an old shoe is not found in having material comes from within.

Jim Olson is a ranch-raised cowboy, author and entrepreneur. Growing up on the high plains of eastern New Mexico he learned to ride young colts, tend to cattle and drive heavy farm equipment at an early age.

He lives on and operates a ranch near Stanfield, Arizona, once a part of John Wayne’s Red River Ranch, and also owns Western Trading Post, dealing in Cowboy and Indian collectibles. 

These great life experiences Jim now uses in his writing career. He writes stories about interesting and extraordinary people of the west including short stories of both fiction and nonfiction.
