The book The Trouble With Panthers
by William Culyer Hall ISBN: 978-1-886104-42-6
ďThe trouble with panthers is they canít change. With the whole world changin round it, old panther got no choice but to go on bein a panther. It canít reason like you and me -- canít decide to earn its livin a little differently.Ē
Central Florida, November 2004. Upon hearing this admonition from his dying grandfather, young cowman, Bodie Rawlerson, doesnít hesitate to promise the old man that he wonít be like the panther. Though he hates change, fears it more than anything else, he vows to do whatever necessary to carry on the family legacy of raising cattle on the land he so dearly loves. But unbeknownst to Bodie, forces are already in motion to render his promise impossible to keep. Within days of his grandfatherís passing, these forces of human (and inhuman) nature will convince him that nothing lasts forever, that change is lifeís only certainty -- that time and chance do indeed rule us all.
ďThis is one of those rare novels that both entertain and inform. It takes the reader on a journey through Florida cattle country in times gone by, and is a pleasure to read. The characters are real, the actions are real, and the scenes are real. Highly recommended!"
