  • See my signature STEVE EDWARDS QUEEN VALLEY MULE SADDLE AND TACK: I have designed a mule saddle that will truly fit any mule.  It is the result of 40 years of experience and hard work.   I did not set out to be a saddle builder, but our mules and donkeys guided me in the development of this unique saddle that sure changes everything for your mule or donkey.  No more "padding up a horse saddle" or hoping for the best.  Saddle up with confidence and get the most out of your mule using our tack.  I've been using this design on my working ranch since 1981.

Full Tilt Boogie New Book !!
Part autobiography and part memoir, Full Tilt Boogie is a story of determination, love and perseverance in the face of adversity. Colorado Central magazine columnist Martha Quillen perhaps sums it up best:

“This is an incredibly honest account of a father trying to do his best in the face of uncertainty. Full Tilt Boogie overflows with love, commitment, fear, hope, and courage, and is a powerful tale of a man preparing himself to face the long haul.”

I wrote Full Tilt Boogie with reckless disregard for mass marketability or for what anybody else thinks. I totally ignored some suggestions of those close to me who read early drafts. I sent it to three publishers, all of whom turned it down saying they liked the story and liked the writing, but it just didn't fit their marketing niches and genres. I ultimately decided to self-publish. I am holding on to no presumptions other than I created this book from beginning to end using my own skills, heart and life experiences, and remained as true to myself as possible in doing so. The book is 224 pages and includes several color photographs.

Full Tilt Boogie is available in both electronic form and paperback.
