Michael Loyd Young – Boots, Bourbon & Brisket

Michael Loyd Young

Boots, Bourbon & Brisket

The Texas Hill Country is a special place where ever-changing vistas stretch from Austin to the West Texas plains. Country roads dotted with bluebonnets and Indian paintbrushes connect the small towns that are void of the franchised businesses. If you pass another vehicle traveling down a farm road you’re greeted with a friendly wave. Saturday nights are special. Families and neighbors gather at the local dance halls and BBQ joints while children catch fireflies in empty pickle jars under star-filled skies. The sound of laughter can be heard as people enjoy summer carnivals, parades and rodeos where the aroma of smoking brisket, ribs and sausage fill the air. Country music plays every afternoon under the old oak trees in Luckenbach and other historical dance halls scattered throughout the region. Old timers share their stories over an ice cold beer. The creeks and rivers are lined with majestic bald cypress trees providing natural swimming holes with names such as “The Blue Hole” and “Jacobs Well”.

The Hill Country is a way of life…time stands still… and change comes slow. The lifestyle reminds me of the small towns of the past.. “Like old America”.

Boots, Bourbon & Brisket will complete my trilogy of the South. Blues, Booze & BBQ was my first book followed by Beer, Bait & Ammo.
