Into the Wind introduces to a broader audience the thoughtful, humane, wryly humorous observations of Amarillo Globe-Times columnist David Horsley. His perspective on contemporary life reflects his decision to become a stay-at-home dad, while his attorney wife took over principal bread winning responsibilities.

Horsley's is a close-up view of the small realities that form the texture of our lives: the vagaries of his garden, his switch from shooting to feeding birds, his youngest child's last bottle, conquering a fear of roller coasters, the virtues of a classic BLT sandwich, the delights--and drawbacks--of his afternoon nap habit.

Lighter pieces are punctuated with more serious observations on some of today's most complex issues: lamenting the circumstances that impede friendships between white and black men, or unraveling the theological arguments wrongly used to condone gay-bashing. Subtly--and often by example--he beckons his readers toward exhibiting greater compassion, tolerance, and fairness every day.

Horsley views life on the high plains with amusement and affection--always informed by his theological training, but never overwhelmed by it. And his unconventional outlook, rendered in graceful, colloquial prose, is one that his readers will find both entertaining and thought-provoking.
