Rated 5 out of 5 by from A bitter rodeo cowboy loses his faith. Steven Law has given us another great cowboy centered drama in addition to his many previous books. I am a great fan of his, and have read several of the books, including, El Paso Way, Brave Sonora, and Yuma Gold, all of which were outstanding reads. Each of these excellent books prompted me to write reviews about his exceptional talent. In this book, he tells the story of young Colt Ballard, who on his tenth birthday, suffers a hugely traumatic loss when his parents die in a car wreck. Years later, Colt is an angry, bitter and emotionally scarred rodeo roper, who soon begins creating his own trouble wherever he goes. During the time of his slipping rank in rodeo standings, Colt loses everything he believes is making his life bearable. The losses fuel more anger, bitterness and heavy drinking. As Colt begins to blame everyone else for his failures, his disbelief in God grows even stronger. His hardened heart soon gives up all faith of life providing him with the things he thinks will make him happy. Soon he sinks into deep despair. His old rodeo mentor, Spud, attempts to help him through his emotional trials, but Colt wants nothing to do with Spud’s efforts. Author Law writes extremely unique books, I was able to relate to in various ways. In The Bitter Road, Law gives a very thought provoking and inspirational story of loss and redemption. I believe this book is truly worth a read, not only by the cowboy genre fans. All of us could benefit from the worthiness of the book.
