Sorry - The Last Ride Is No Longer Available
The Last Ride
On November 11, 1995, at the age of 25, former bullriding champion Glen "Pee Wee" Mercer suffered an
accident while dismounting a bull at the Sutheastern Circuit Final at
Brighton, Florida which resulted in a broken neck and severed spinal
cord, thus changing his life forever. The Last Ride is the dramatic story of his life both before and after the accident.
Although this book covers Pee Wee's rodeo career throughout Florida and
many other parts of the United States, it is not just a book about
rodeo. It is also the story of young love gone awry, of adventure, high
humor, youthful exuberance during those years when young people think
they are indestructible, of hopes and dreams of the future and how
those hopes and dreams are shattered forever in just one split second
This is also a heartfelt story of courage, of the determination to
endure in a world few others can even imagine. Sometimes it is a very
lonely world indeed, one peopled only with memories.
The Last Ride
will grip the interest and emotions of all readers, young and old
alike. It is much like taking a literary rafting trip down a turbulent
mountain stream. You will be come part of the action and will be there
each step of the way.
As co-author Patrick Smith says at the end of this book, Pee Wee Mercer is truly a "Profile in Courage."
