Boleto is cowboy poetry. Alyson Hagy writes beautifully about cowboys and the west. And Horses! I had horses growning up and rarely do novels describe horses and horse people with a true eye. Alyson Hagy does, and wow, she writes exquisitely, paragraph after paragraph. Beautiful and poetric with great characters and a good story. You'll want to run off to a dude ranch and head out on a trail ride. Yes, I loved it!
