The Chameleon Rancher
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 www.hppr.org 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.

Pat's New Book A Sellout!

 Pat Jacobs, a Kansas native, was at the Hastings Book Store in Dodge City, Kansas, for a book signing on May 29, promoting his new book, “The Chameleon Rancher.” Even though the book is fiction, it is based on ranchers and big cattlemen that Jacobs knew, as well as colorful characters that old timers told him about. “The signing was a success with a great turnout,” commented Jacobs. “We sold out of both of my books, this new one and “Outcasts, Outlaws, & Second Chance Horses.”

The story takes place in western Kansas in the 1890’s and is centered around the main character, Clint Armstrong. It takes you through Indian Territory in Nebraska and to the National Union Stockyards in Kansas City, Denver and Fort Worth and even on some trips to ole’ Mexico where the main character was buying cattle.

The story takes place in 1941 when the country had just come out of the Great Depression and the ole’ Dust Bowl era.

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.

So whether you love horses or cattle, want to know more history about the formative years of the National Cutting Horse Association, or just like a good human-interest story told against the backdrop of the High Plains of Kansas and some of its history, you will enjoy this book and its surprise ending.

Jacobs’ previous book was “Outcasts, Outlaws and Second Chance Horses – the Pat Jacobs story,” and his two music videos include ”Legendary Western Swing” by Pat Jacobs and The Over the Hill Gang and “The Oklahoma Swing Project,” the very best of Swing by the legends. 

“I would like to thank everyone for coming out,” said Jacobs. “I saw some old friends and made some new ones.” Pat will return to Dodge City during the Fair and Rodeo for another book signing. Hastings Book Store will also carry copies of both of Jacobs’ books. For more information on this book or other books or videos published by Pat Jacobs, visit him online at www.patjacobs.com. Both books are also available at www.amazon.com in paperback and kindle versions.
