I would like to recommend a memoir, written by my friend, Bill O'Brien, who passed away before its upcoming release. The book is titled The Extraordinary Life of Bill O'Brien: an Ordinary Arizona Irish Cowboy. Bill was a rancher, a pilot, WWII veteran, businessman and founder of the Irish Cultural Center in Phoenix. His latest project was Los San Patricios de Arizona, which he formed to honor the memory of the Irish solders of the St. Patrick's Battalion who gave their lives for the cause of Mexico during the Mexican-American war. The book can be pre-ordered at Amazon.com or through the publisher inkwellpoductions.com.
