Pickle is a farmer, a philosopher, a finagling sort, a deep thinker and a delightful human being. Most of all he is fun. John Mattingly’s writing is as full of bounce as an arena full of one-legged clowns in the Country Rodeo on Fourth of July. The man has verve, wit, and perspicacity. He’ll make you think, too. These stories are GREAT! One day Pickle is going to be immortal.
–John Nichols, author of The Milagro Beanfield War

The writings of JOHN MATTINGLY explore his 40+ years as a Colorado farmer and ‘ag’ guy, from the Front Range north of Fort Collins to down south, in what the Native Americans called the ‘big space’, known today as the San Luis Valley. His short stories, essays and novels are self-published. His latest work, The Topic of Capricorn, is a series of stories and ruminations about goats, available through Mirage Publishing. Mattingly also writes a bi-weekly column called ‘The Socratic Farmer’ for Fence Post magazine. Here’s the cover of Topic Of Capricorn.
