AUBURN – Patricia Probert Gott of South Paris recently had her fifth book published and will have a book-signing from noon to 3 p.m. Saturday, May 10, at Waldenbooks in the Auburn Mall.

“Cowgirl Days,” the second book in her Cowgirl series published by PublishAmerica, takes readers to the next season of training young horses and wild mustangs at Dustin’s family D & L Horse Ranch in Montana. There, the adventures go from horse training to endurance racing.

While Dustin goes to Pahaska for the summer to run his own pack outfit in and around Yellowstone, the central character returns to Rimrock Ranch outside of Cody, Wy., to work as a wrangler and trail guide – all the while trying to deflect Dustin’s ex-fiancée.

The summer includes an exhilarating pack trip over Ptarmigan Mountain into Hardpan Basin, and working a premier pack trip from Cody to Jackson, Wy., via Marsten Pass and returning by way of Eagle Creek Pass in a snowstorm.

Gott’s first Cowgirl book, “So You Wanna Be a Cowgirl,” is a personal narrative of a 40-year-old divorced businesswoman from Maine. The story is based on her adventures while working as a horse wrangler and trail guide at a dude ranch for three summers in Cody, Wy.

Gott’s other three books are “Metamorphosis: My Journey of Growth and Change,” an autobiography containing photos of her travels and adventures; “Volunteer to Empower,” which tells of her experiences volunteering in Tanzania, Africa; and “Ancient Egypt and the Nile,” which relates her recent adventures in Cairo and sailing down the Nile.

An accomplished equestrienne who owns and trains her own Arabian horses, Gott has visited 47 states and has been horse trekking on four continents.
