    1. This sequel to Grass Beyond the Mountains is ALMOST as good, maybe 99% as good. Rich Hobson is back along with Pan Phillips, continuing their adventures as top hands on a gigantic ranch in the Chilcotin. Other reviewers say how much they enjoyed the TV series -- I didn't know this existed, and I must find a way to watch it. I love these guys!


    2. Cowboys, living in the beautiful British Columbia Interior, what is not to love!?When I realised that one of my favourite TV shows from High School was based on a true life story and book series, I knew I would have to read it.Fast forward to now. I had to buy the Ebook, as the book was hard to come by. I was drawn into the story right away, but quickly learned I didn't start right at the beginning. Nothing Too Good for A Cowboy was book 2 of 3. The story starts with Rich and Pan coming up with [...]


    3. Rich Hobson continues his tale of the 4 million acre Frontier Cattle Company that he and Pan Phillips, with financing and management from George Pennoyer, built "north of the 53rd" in BC's Chilcotin Country. "Grass Beyond the Mountains" took the reader to 1937 and the first herd of cattle trailed into the ranch. Nothing too Good for a Cowboy picks up the story in 1939. The war has begun and manpower will be scarce but Pan and Rich decide to stick it out rather than fold the ranch.By this time th [...]


    4. synopsis:richmond hobson and panhandle phillips form the frontier cattle company, which becomes one of the largest cattle ranches in british columbia, second only to the gang ranch. their land ranges from bella coola to quesnel to vanderhoof. this story is their tribulations the first winter that they are truely on their own, without a huge backer.what i liked: learning about the early days of bc. the realities that they had to go through are unimaginable, just to bring the cattle through the wi [...]


    5. Alison, Central patron, July 2016, 5 stars:Set in remote British Columbia in the early years of World War II. The young men were going to war, no longer available to ranch. Cows still needed feeding, overseeing, driving to market, etc. Plenty of adventure fighting extreme cold and harsh frontier conditions. You also pick up on Rich Hobson's attitudes toward nature, wolves, first nations -- much more understanding than I've read in memoirs written by white men pre-World War I. I'll read his other [...]


    6. Second of a trilogy by Rich Hobson. After losing everything in the stock market crash Hobson, & partner sidekick Panhandle Phillips travel to Northern British Columbia in search of new frontier land. They found the Frontier Cattle Company spanning over a million acres. These are stories from Hobsons first years at the Batannuni Home Ranch on the shores of Batannuni Lake, 100km north-west of Quesnel. I've been spending the past 3 falls working out of cabins on this very lake. A true history.


    7. The story follows the first, and chronicles the set up of the ranch and cattle company and the adventures and trials involved. I enjoyed it even more than the first. Off to the library to get the 3rd and final book in this series!


    8. This is the second of three books recounting Hobson's amazing experiences while "pioneering" the raising of cattle in British Columbia, just before and after WWII. An unusual topic, but a true story well worth reading.


    9. Ranching in the Black water area of B.C. - see review for Grass Beyond the Mountains - True Story - Ranch just sold for 4.5 Million


    10. Again, absolutely fascinating as a fifth grader. A classic cowboy adventure mixed in with enough of my own hometown heritage to really create a go-to must-read again and again.


    11. Follow up to Grass Beyond the Mountains but by now I was tired of his style. Amazing how values change too - they drain all their swamps.



    12. I love this book! I read it after the tv show went off the air and I've read it numerous times. Definitely worth picking up!
