It can't be denied that some horsemen and women have more "horse sense" than others. My great good friend Larry Gleason, mentioned in this presentation, always seemed to have his head screwed on straighter than most.

Lars (Larry) is a wise and important character in my book The Phantom Ghost of Harriet Lou, central to six of the book's "Old Man and the Boy stories" about a grandpa teaching his grandson how to hunt elk during their annual wilderness hunting adventures.

There are additional stories about Larry in my book Dance On the Wild Side, the story of Jane's and my struggle to live a life filled with adventure as outfitters and guides in the Bob Marshall Wilderness. Larry eased that struggle.
