|Author||: Nat Love|

Thousands of black cowpunchers drove cattle up the Chisholm Trail after the Civil War, but only Nat Love wrote about his experiences. Born to slaves in Davidson County, Tennessee, the newly freed Love struck out for Kansas after the war. He was fifteen and already endowed with a reckless and romantic readiness. In wide-open Dodge City he joined up with an outfit from the Texas Panhandle to begin a career riding the range and fighting Indians, outlaws, and the elements. Years later he would say, "I had an unusually adventurous life". That was rare understatement. More characteristic was Love's claim: "I carry the marks of fourteen bullet wounds on different parts of my body, most any one of which would be sufficient to kill an ordinary man, but I am not even crippled". In 1876 a virtuoso rodeo performance in Deadwood, Dakota Territory, won him the moniker of Deadwood Dick. He became known as DD all over the West, entering into dime novels as a mysteriously dark and heroic presence. This vivid autobiography includes encounters with Bat Masterson and Billy the Kid, a soon-after view of the Custer battlefield, and a successful courtship. Love left the range in 1890, the year of the official closing of the frontier. Then, as a Pullman train conductor he traveled his old trails, and those good times bring his story to a satisfying end.

Sullyman The Third wants to take you on his funny rollercoaster ride – to his bathroom cleaning shift inside a busy fast food restaurant; to his exhausting run-ins with famous rock star legends; to his backyard New Year’s Eve bash as neighbors in inappropriate costumes arrive; to his visit with U.S. government officials after being declared dead – knowing full well he’s got no working brakes. In his debut short story collection of humor, Happy New Millennium, the New York-based author takes a look back after turning 50 and tries to make sense of his multi-decade situations alongside a wide range of personalities and events. Happy New Millennium is a welcome compilation of humor for those looking for anything in 2020 to laugh at – namely, Sullyman The Third.
