ABOUT ALL THE COWBOY'S AIN'T GONE 

All the Cowboys Ain't Gone is the rollicking adventure story of Lincoln Smith, a young Texan living at the beginning of the twentieth century, who thinks of himself as the last true cowboy. He longs for the days of the Old West, when men like his father, a famous Texas Ranger, lived by the chivalric code. Lincoln finds himself hopelessly out of time and place in the fast-changing United States of the new century. When he gets his heart broken by a sweetheart who doesn't appreciate his anachronistic tendencies, he does what any sensible young romantic would do: he joins the French Foreign Legion.

On his way to an ancient and exotic country at the edge of the Sahara, Lincoln encounters a number of curious characters and strange adventures, from a desert hermit who can slow up time to a battle with a crocodile cult that worships the god of death. He meets them all with his own charming brand of courage and resourcefulness.


ABOUT JOHN J. JACOBSON

Though John J. Jacobson didn't join the French Foreign Legion after being jilted by a girlfriend, or over his displeasure of missing the last great cattle drive, he has, borrowing Churchill's phrase, lived a rather variegated life. He was born in Nevada, grew up in the West, surfed big waves in Hawaii, circled the world thrice, survived the sixties and seventies, corporate America, and grad school. Among other degrees he has an MA in Renaissance literature from Claremont Graduate University.

ABOUT JAMES WADE

James Wade lives and writes in Texas with his wife and daughter. He is the author of All Things Left Wild, a winner of the Writers' League of Texas Manuscript Contest, and a finalist of the Tethered by Letters Short Fiction Contest. His fiction has appeared in various literary magazines, including The Bitter Oleander.
