I just completed reading 'The Chameleon Rancher", and found it both entertaining and contains a lot of factual information.  Having lived in Kansas and Practiced Veterinary medicine in Kansas, Oklahoma and Texas, there are many Clints out there and many hungry bankers. One of the characters you spoke of in your book John Ed was a good friend and there is no fiction surrounding him. Congratulations on the book being a sucess, keep on writing and keep us all involved in western history.

Dear Mr. Jacobs:  

What do you buy a man for his birthday?  Especially a man that has everything he needs and wants very little?  Well, your book is exactly the perfect gift for my husband, Dennis Harris!    He was quite impressed with you the afternoon we met you in Joshua, TX.  We immediately looked up your web site and viewed your photo gallery and read your biography.  I have to say you are an interesting man with a colorful history, which is all the more reason your book will mean a lot to Dennis.  He too, has had a colorful history.  He has been a connoisseur of good horses, women and dogs his entire life!  (Not necessarily in that order - !)  He has narrowed down the women in his life to just "one" now - that being me - and we have enjoyed a wonderful life together now of 20 years and looking forward to the next 20 and beyond.   If you would please autograph your book to him, it would mean so much to me.  Dennis is an avid reader and loves telling a good story as well as reading them.  

Again, thank you and I, too, look forward to reading your wild tales!

I finished the book. It's amazing! I finished it early last week because I couldn't put it down but I just had a chance to email you! I can't wait to meet you! I laughed and cried! My dad gets to deal with a hand JUST like Two Gun! Elevator describes it perfectly! 

I should tell you that some family friends of ours managed the Cauble Ranch in Crockett up until a month or so ago. My brother day helped there for a couple years. When they acquired the place, we went thru the bunkhouse and found the first sale catalog from 1962. So, I have a copy because they weren't about to get out with all of them! : ) I always wondered what Rex was like. I enjoyed reading that he was on the board when you went to beg for forgiveness. I have tons of questions and comments.. .but I know you're busy! You may say, I'm you're biggest fan! : )

Holiday Book Signings with Pat Jacobs
Pat Jacobs will be returning to Kansas over the Thanksgiving holiday to sign books, cd’s and to visit with old friends on November 27. He will begin his day as a guest on Marshall Allen Baileys Radio Show, Western Swing and Other Things, from 10 a.m. to 1 p.m. Listen online at Jacobs will then continue his day at Hastings Books with a book signing in Dodge City from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m and Garden City from 6 p.m. to 8 p.m. Come meet the Kansas man that has lived and breathed the cowboy lifestyle.  He will then return to Texas for a signing on Thursday, December 2 and Saturday, December 4 in the Watt Arena during the NCHA World Finals at the Will Rogers Complex in Fort Worth. A perfect stocking stuffer for this holiday season is Pat’s second novel, “The Chameleon Rancher.” This intriguing book is set in Kansas on the backdrop of the Great Depression and the ole’ Dust Bowl era in 1941. Since Jacobs lived it, including riding cutting horses in a race for the World Championship of the National Cutting Horse Association, he used actual characters, with made-up names, from his huge bank of memories for this book. He has woven colorful individuals into a backdrop of actual events with fictional, yet believable, cowboys and ranchers, plus a dash of love, sex, drama and human frailties.  If you haven’t experienced the tales of Pat Jacobs, don’t forget to pick up a copy of his first novel, "Outcasts, Outlaws and Second-Chance Horses." Now in its second edition, this book continues to receive praise and recognition including his latest honor, the 2010 Will Rogers Medallion Award. Famed writer Tom McGuane says that "Outcasts, Outlaws and Second-Chance Horses," is "for anyone wanting to know what cutting looked like when it still had the hide on... and was still an outdoor sport." That was over two years ago and this book has become a bookshelf keeper to all that have enjoyed its pages. Please join Pat on November 27, December 2, and December 4, for a day of cowboys and their horses as only he can share.
