A short description of the novel…

What would cause two friends to leave Cajun country and go on a foolhardy romp through Colorado? The argumentative Cajun and Tee Man attend the National western stock show in Denver to buy a bull. They craft an impromptu visit to Winter Park ski resort where, coincidently, the blind J.O., is enjoying winter sports with challenged veterans. The raucous bunch celebrates and J.O. cajoles Cat into a snowmobile race, which ends in near-disaster.
Cat and Tee Man receive a traffic citation on their return trip to Denver for tossing trash from their vehicle. Cat’s belligerence in court earns him a fine for contempt and Tee Man is sentenced to community service.
The duo encounters a run-away teenager and her baby, hunted by a heartless baby-seller. Cat again demonstrates his propensity for trouble when he spares neither energy nor money to help the fugitive teen elude the evildoer. Patsy Mae, summoned by her grandpa to Denver, experiences a near-calamitous adventure of her own.
Back home, Tee Man battles his mother-in-law about her feelings towards Caucasians. Cat’s family and friends agonize over the diagnosis when he undergoes a traumatic episode during attempts to rescue Tee Man’s captive family from hostage takers.
The suspense, fast-moving action, and strained race relations, will keep readers on the edge of their seats, while they enjoy the love and warm friendliness of Cat and associates.
Contains strong language and descriptions of violence.
