“This book is very engaging and readable. I found it very enjoyable. (I’m) Not sure how
I feel about the political commentary but it helped (me) to think about things from a
different point of view.” t.i.m –on Amazon

“Summer on the White Grass is a coming of age story with heart, set in the splendor of an
adolescent season in Wyoming. It was a breezy read and this new author has many
insights worth considering. Most important, it is a book you will enjoy reading, one you
will look forward to cracking open each night before bed–as I did. It transported me to
Wyoming’s high timber country of Jackson Hole in a gentler and kinder time. As you
will read, the author’s place of summer adventure meets an unworthy fate—and his quest
to restore the White Grass Ranch is a noble one indeed! Highly recommended!” b.w. –

“Lou ‘says it like it is’ in this honest memoir. Experience time on a Wyoming ranch and
regret what it has become. He is still a Western patriot!” c.b. Librarian

“I very much enjoyed the book, especially the way the author tied a recapitulation of his
exciting and fascinating cowboy days in Wyoming and his business life to the history of
the failure of leadership and decline of moral character of our society. He is insightful,
goes into some detail and hits hard on religion, singling out the (Roman) Catholic
hierarchy, (and issues of) inequality, poverty, racial discrimination, politics, our
government, the last eight years of Congress and the election of Donald Trump” s.s. —

“A rich, nostalgic journey of youth, with a big dose of acerbic political commentary”

“The book itself is well made and I really liked the ‘western’ type fonts chosen for
printing. It is not really a memoir and could be read as a novel or as a history book. (The
author did) a good job of capturing the enthusiasm in his memories of the White Grass
Ranch and it reads like a well written novel. He certainly has an interesting story to tell.
When reading it start to finish, I did feel ‘tethered’ to the “Summer” story and
appreciated the additions of his personal opinions– some of which might not presently be
‘in style’ but ought to be. This book is a fine piece of work!” m.w. -Guitarist

“The author’s telling of his experiences getting to and on the White Grass ranch begins in
joy and idealism—and ends in sadness and disappointment. All due to a shady shell
game the National Park Service plays after it purchases the ranch property and raises just
under one million dollars of public contributions solicited for the ‘restoration’ of the
ranch structures. Along the way, the author branches out his narrative into other issues of
failure of leadership in a society that seems to him to have lost its ‘moral compass’.
Morality is a very broad concept and I find, in the writing, the author deals with it in a
highly personalized fashion. The real value of this book lies in the author’s recording of
his experiences that led to the opinions he holds –and his sharing of those experiences
with us in an honest, often humorous and always straightforward way. J.c.p.—

“I highly recommend this book for all the people who have a love for country, the west,
or how things change as we get older and wish to reflect on the way we are and the way
things we love used to be. I read the book in a short few days with great anticipation of
the next page and only put it down when forced to by required events like dinner,
bedtime or other necessary daily needs. I can’t say I agree with all the politics put forth,
but having thought about what was written, my original thoughts and my final thoughts—
I am again glad I read the book for enlightenment” w.h.– Aeronautial Engineer (retired)

“Lou takes us on an adventure based on his life’s journey and guides us through twists
and turns in a broken world. He does not pull any punches when revealing his thoughts
on topics close to his heart. I believe his purpose is to send a wake up call to many of the
younger generation to search for truth and sincerity when it comes to serving their fellow
man (or woman).” r.n.—(who signs himself) “ATM Guy”
