Cowboys Are My : In Pam Houston’s critically acclaimed collection of strong, shrewd, and very funny stories, we meet smart women who are looking for the love of a good man, and men who are wild and hard to pin down. “I’ve always had this thing for cowboys, maybe because I was born in New Jersey,” says the narrator in the collection’s title story. “But a real cowboy is hard to find these days, even in the West.”

Our heroines are part daredevil, part philosopher, all acute observers of the nuances of modern romance. They go where their cowboys go, they meet cowboys who don’t look the part – and they have staunch friends who give them advice when the going gets rough. Cowboys Are My Weakness is a refreshing and realistic look at men and women – together and apart.

“Once you get to Moose Creek you’re committed,” she said. “There’s no time to change your mind after that. You’ve got Double Drop and Little Niagara and Ladle, and they just keep coming like that, one after another with no slow water in between.”

She was talking about rapids. This was my first northern trip, and after a lazy spring making slow love between rapids on the wide desert rivers, I couldn’t imagine what all the fuss was about.

“If you make it through the Moose Creek series there’s only a few more real bad ones; Wolf Creek is the worst. After that the only thing to worry about is the takeout point. The beach will be under water, and if you miss it, you’re over Selway Falls.”

“Do you have a river guide?” Jack said, and when she bent under the counter to get one he tried again to slide the permit away. She pushed a small, multifolded map in his direction.

“Don’t rely on it,” she said. “The rapids aren’t even marked in the right place.”

“Thanks for your help,” Jack said. He gave the permit a sharp tug and put it in his pocket.“There was an accident today,” Ramona said. “In Ladle.”

“Anybody hurt?” Jack asked.

“It’s not official.”
