"The Log of a Cowboy" is an account of a five-month drive of 3,000 cattle from Brownsville, Texas, to Montana during 1882 along the Great Western Cattle Trail. Although the book is fiction, it is based on Adams's own experiences, and it is considered by many to be literature's best account of cowboy life. Adams was disgusted by the unrealistic cowboy fiction being published in his time; The Log of a Cowboy was his response. The Chicago Herald has said: "As a narrative of cowboy life, Andy Adams' book is clearly the real thing. It carries its own certificate of authentic first-hand experience on every page." This edition also includes Adams other famous western novels like The Outlet, A Texas Matchmaker, Reed Anthony, Cowman and The Wells Brothers.
Andy Adams (1859-1935) was an American writer of western fiction and was born in Indiana. Since childhood Andy used to help his parents with the cattle and horses on the family farm. Due to this Andy's works have been lauded widely for his ...

Find out I'm a witch? Double check. Learn I have a soulmate? Triple check. Awaken five dead witches from a tomb? And... We have a runner!
Seriously, this was not how I envisioned my first year on my own to go. They say being an adult is hard, but try being one and finding out you have to wake the dead! Yeah, it's a whole new level of complicated. Add in the fact that the strange tug I've been feeling is getting worse, leading me to my soul mate, a man I didn't even know existed, and you can kind of understand why I'm freaking out a bit.
Magic is not something to play with.
Magic is something that happens to you. It becomes a part of you. Every tendril of wispy energy weaves its way through your soul until you are consumed by it.
Now. I just have to survive long enough to learn how to use it.

They wanted a chance; they were given a choice:
Follow the scripted path at Gaia Sur, or face the unknown to find their families. In AQUA and TERRA, Jazz and her friends took the risk, then battled the seven biomes of the "Rush." Now, from high above the earth in Admin City, it's clear their fight has only just begun. Told from two perspectives, the third book in The Elements series sends part of the crew to a topside world that isn't the way they left it and the rest into the virtuo-cine network, where truth is blurred, and time is running out.
