Diary of a Dirty Cowboy by Jade Rivers tells of the escapades of Clinton, a virginal social misfit, just out of high school and with approximately three weeks to kill before leaving for Marine Basic Training and oh, what escapades they are!!!

The book starts out with Clinton writing to his late oldest brother Jesse in a diary of sorts. He starts by telling Jesse that Hank brought a “little honey” to the house for Clinton’s graduation celebration and Clinton’s reaction when she touched him on the arm! Oh, my!! LOL Next up is his trip to the Quarry when he comes across three college girls skinny-dipping and his reaction! I won’t go into everything that was written because you have to read it in order to truly enjoy it!

Ms. Rivers gives us a gamut of emotions in this book – from laughter to sadness to rage to joy and everything in between. It was wonderful to “see” Clinton mature over the six-month period of the diary. It was a pleasure to read this book – it’s the kind of book that you can’t help feeling good about life after reading it!
