From Blueprints to Bridles – Architect-Turned-Cowboy, Bob West, Shares the Unforgettable Tale of His Journey into Wyoming’s Vast Ranching Frontier

UNITED STATES, January 25, 2024 / — In an enthralling narrative that seamlessly blends the allure of “Yellowstone” with the humor of “City Slickers,” Bob West, a third-generation Colorado native, architect, and now cowboy, unveils his captivating memoir, “Twenty Miles of Fence; Blueprint of a Cowboy.” The book chronicles West’s decade-long transformation from an urban architect to a cattle rancher in the rugged terrain of Wyoming.

“Twenty Miles of Fence” is a compelling journey of self-discovery as Bob West, a westerner at heart, leaves behind the hustle of urban life in Colorado to embrace the challenges and rewards of cattle ranching in Wyoming. The book offers a unique perspective on the realities of ranch life through the eyes of a complete novice, providing readers with an intimate look at the highs and lows, the trials and triumphs of navigating 3,800 acres of ranching territory.

Bob West’s professional journey began with a Bachelor of Environmental Design in 1977 and a Master of Architecture with honors in 1979 from the University of Colorado. After a successful career in architecture, where he co-founded OZ Architecture, the largest firm in Colorado, West sought solace in ranching. Alongside his life partner, Alanna Day, he now runs The Forks Mercantile and Saloon and tends to a herd of “Scottish” Highland cattle at The Whiskey Belle Ranch. “Twenty Miles of Fence” is a testament to his remarkable shift from the corporate world to the cowboy lifestyle.

“Twenty Miles of Fence; Blueprint of a Cowboy” marks Bob West’s literary debut.

Connect with Bob West on Facebook through his pages “Robert West (Bob)” and “Whiskey Belle Ranch” for updates and insights into his cowboy lifestyle.

The decision to become a cowboy and the subsequent experiences of learning from the land, navigating the challenges of ranch life, and immersing in the Wyoming cowboy culture compelled Bob West to share his unique story. “Twenty Miles of Fence” is a testament to the transformative power of biting off more than one can chew.

The primary message readers can glean from “Twenty Miles of Fence” is the realization that life’s challenges, much like biting off more than one can chew, can lead to unexpected and fulfilling outcomes. West’s journey reflects the resilience of the human spirit and the profound lessons learned when stepping out of one’s comfort zone.
