Tailwind Both Ways

by Laurence M. Lasater

Lasater Philosophy of Cattle RaisingA witness to the changes in one of America's greatest industries, Tailwind Both Ways charts one cowman's course for professional survival and personal fulfillment.

The exciting journey of a young couple who took "the big risk" of moving to a foreign country to pioneer in the rugged wilds of Mexico, including run-ins with hostile Indians in the 1960s, is sure to capture the reader's spirit of adventure.

From their pioneering on an isolated ranch to marketing cattle nationally and internationally and making sophisticated deals with Wall Street and businessmen on the Forbes International Billionaire list, while surviving the U.S. market crashes of the 1970s and drought of the '90s, this story encompasses a firsthand account of the experiences of this generation's cattlemen.

Editor y traductor - Marcos Giménez Zapiola

La Filosofia Lasater de la Cria VacunaEn 1972, cuando el Denver Post comentó la primera edición de este libro, señaló que en verdad no se trataba de una obra sobre ganado vacuno, sino sobre la filosofía de la vida.

Lorenzo & Don Clemente

by Annette N. Lasater

Preserving the childhood relationship her son, Lorenzo, shared with wise, though illiterate, cowboy Don Clemente was so important that Annette Lasater penned a children's book relating the precious memories.

Lorenzo & Don Clemente describes the experiences of two unlikely friends—a young boy and a 55-year-old Spanish-speaking cowboy—during the Lasaters' 10 years living on an isolated mountain ranch in Northern Mexico's rugged mountains.

"He was a wise, old man teaching a young boy about life," Annette Lasater said. "They didn't speak the same lanuage, but it didn't matter."

The book is illustrated throughout with sensitive, detailed pen-and-ink drawings by noted artist Ronald Thomason.

For children ages 5 to 95 years.
