Book: Here Comes Cowboy Larry

(ROSENBERG, Texas) — NEWS: “HERE COMES COWBOY LARRY, STEPPING OUT IN FAITH” (ISBN 978-1667838816) is the biographical story of Larry Callies in his own words, he dreamt from the age of ten of becoming a Cowboy; and his spiritual journey as man of color to the founding of the First Museum honoring the long history of the Black Cowboy Heritage.

Born in El Campo, Texas in 1952, Larry Callies’ life begins as the veil of the Segregation Era was lifted, and the unregulated racial divide offered scant opportunities with harsh limitations and constant strife with the rise of civil rights and black empowerment.

This must-read story shares insight into Larry’s unshakeable grit, unrelenting compassion, unbending stubbornness, and unmistakable kindness which Larry cultivated while growing up in a segregated Southeast Texas over three decades on ranches, singing Country Western songs at the then segregated Gilley’s Nightclub with Gilley’s all white band, and life-risking bull penning jobs.

Together, the reader will experience Larry’s dream unfolding and take on different shapes through the influences in his life from his Cowboy Father, his Christian Mother, and Famous Cousins to Community Members, Famous Singers, to his eventual tragedy when Larry was diagnosed with Vocal Dysphonia and ultimately ending his budding singing career.

Larry’s greatest success came when he accepted, his now famous quote, “I am a Christian first, and a Cowboy second.”

“HERE COMES COWBOY LARRY, STEPPING OUT IN FAITH” shares how dreams can transform from a vision into reality with faith; when one door closes, God will offer another path of opportunity.
