Bull in a China Shop: Iowa Farm Boy Grows Up During the Depression and Becomes a Cattle Buyer in the West from the 1950s–1980s


(Entertainment-NewsWire.com, May 07, 2024 ) Denver, CO and Omaha, NE – Outskirts Press—the fastest-growing, full-service self-publishing and book marketing company—is pleased to announce the release of new nonfiction, Bull in a China Shop: Iowa Farm Boy Grows Up During the Depression and Becomes a Cattle Buyer in the West from the 1950s–1980s. The book is based on Merritt Toyne’s memoirs as an Iowa farm boy growing up during the Depression and dreaming about going West to join the cattle business.

Merritt Toyne chose not to go into his family’s farming business and instead went after his dream, of becoming a highly successful cattle buyer in Wyoming and Montana. His story depicts an era when individuals survived through faith, family, and support from neighbors during an extremely difficult period in our nation's history, embodying the Greatest Generation—the backbone of what made this country great. Their stories recall humor, friendship, and sadness. Many of the book’s characters are gone, but their memories and stories will live on for future generations.

From boozed-up renegades shooting up a cattle buyer's home, business, and cars to prove a point to an unlucky cattle buyer kidnaped for ransom and tied to a tree and left to the wild animals, Bull in a China Shop is a must-read for those who want to experience firsthand the hardships and sacrifices of their parents and grandparents through the Depression, droughts, pandemics and World War II. Baby Boomers will be able to look back at the old Western lifestyle and remember a great period in their lives when family, friends, neighbors, and even strangers supported each other for their livelihood.
