Herman W. Brune has lived his dream of being an outdoorsman and a cowboy.

"Tales From the Lost Rider of Yaupon Creek," is a compilation of stories about Brune and his adventures that take the reader from Mexico to Montana. His stories are entertaining, enlightening and even educational. Readers have an opportunity to ride along on adventures that most people only dream of. The book also offers a glimpse into the life of a Renaissance man who while he wears many hats, he is most proud of being a cowboy in an age where most cowboys have ridden off into the sunset.

Herman W. Brune demonstrated early in life that neither summer 100-degree heat nor the biting cold of a Texas blue norther could keep him indoors. As a small child, he absorbed the embellished outdoor memories of old timers and chased imagined bad guys hell­for-leather across the prairies on horseback. He spent his school years running a trap line for varmints and chasing bad cattle out of the brush. By the time he graduated high school Herman had honed his cowboying and woodsman skills. Unlike many men who dream of life in the outdoors, Herman lived his dream and has enjoyed adventurous outdoor occupations that run the gamut from being a working cowboy, a PRCA saddle bronc rider, an entrepreneur producing shooting competitions, to hunting guide and rancher. Herman has made friends at every stop, from down-at-the-heel cowboys to wealthy business tycoons. Tempered by his own stretches of hard times, he has learned not to judge others too quickly. For that, he has earned their gratitude. Now, as an outdoor writer, Herman has satisfied the old axiom that the best writers "know what they're writin' about." Will James, one of Herman's favorite boyhood authors, said something that could easily pertain to Herman W. Brune. Paraphrased, James said, a man with sand, a man to ride the river with. In the vernacular, a man you can count on as a true friend who will always help you.
