'Tis said of love that it sometimes goes, sometimes flies; runs with one, walks gravely with another; turns a third into ice, and sets a fourth in a flame: it wounds one, another it kills: like lightning it begins and ends in the same moment: it makes that fort yield at night which it besieged but in the morning; for there is no force able to resist it.
--Miguel de Cervantes
The Double H cowboys are a tough bunch, and none of them are gay--exactly--but they have been out there on the prairie for several weeks, herding cattle, and new thoughts have begun to enter their minds. Enter Buck, a handsome young drifter with a silly grin, an unembarrassed penchant for being "rode hard," and an instant hankering for Les--the straight ranch boss. Despite his openness about his tastes, Buck quickly demonstrates to his fellow cowhands that he's no sissy, at the same time charming them with his zest for life. But it is Les who has stolen Buck's heart. As these rugged cowboys dance their own version of the Texas two-step, the other boys watch their little Buck's campaign with amused interest and bet their boots on what the outcome will be.
"The publication of Victor J. Banis's Longhorns is a major event for gay publishing...a terrific novel and a great read" ... Michael Bronski
