Click to zoom The Ride photo book cover

The Ride is an extravagant compilation of fiction and imagination, combined with some real life experiences. It's based on my separation from a woman I dearly loved and my quest to find her again, all woven around a journey on my fictitious Colorado & Western Railroad on "This Train." All of the places, mile posts, and locations are taken directly out of Colorado & Western Timetable No. 4, which gives The Ride a sort of authenticity. Perhaps by reading The Ride it will unleash your own memories of life, whether you want them unleashed or not. The book is for adult reading as children would not understand it, plus there is some strong language in the contents. Therefore the book is "R" rated. There's the conductor; climb aboard "This Train" and take a ride you won't forget.
