Snuffy Johnson's Cowboy Christmas
James "Snuffy" Johnson wakes up two days before the Christmas Eve dance with his whole life planned around his engagement to the daughter of a neighboring homesteader. If you want to hear God chuckle, it is said, tell him your plans. That Christmas of 1926, the young man's path leads him far afield, where he demonstrates to a frightened boy the Christian teaching that charity - the giving of one's self - is the greatest gift of all. And Snuffy, in turn, gets a Christmas present from Jesus greater than any he could have dreamed for himself.

About Jon R Horton
Jon R Horton aka J Royal Horton was one of those kids who read under the covers by flashlight and hoped to be a writer some day. He spent one year as an honors student in English at the University of Wyoming before joining the Air Force, where he was a Russian linguist and intelligence analyst. With his GI Bill, he earned a B.A. in Russian Language and Literature from California State University at Northridge. Years later, he entered the D.A. program at Idaho State University as an English major. But the academic gender wars inspired a career move into the international oil exploration business as a Helicopter Operations Safety and Security Supervisor, specializing in remote operations. After retiring he began to write in earnest, and self-published five novels, all five-starred on Amazon. He was last published in the premier issue of the British literary magazine "Ronin."
