About the Book

Tall Paul’s “Nothin’ But Try” is the life story of Shane Drury, a professional bull rider who was diagnosed with Ewing’s Sarcoma.  The book details Shane’s life of sports, rodeo, family, friends, faith, grit, determination and “try”, as he fought his courageous battle with the deadly disease.  Both inspiring and endearing, the story takes you from Shane’s first bull ride through his entire career, highlighted by his appearance at the National Finals Rodeo in Las Vegas, Nevada and his record setting 95 point ride in Reno, Nevada.  The many photographs give you an up-close and personal look at Shane.  You will read of his own testimonial with regard to his faith, the cancer and his reflections on life.  The book speaks of how Shane’s faith and courage impacted the lives of others, many who had never met him.  “Nothin’ But Try” is more than just the story of a young man who was taken from this earth way too soon.  In reading his story, you will feel a special relationship with this wonderful young man who never quit, never gave up and never lost his faith in God.  You, too, will fall in love with Shane Drury.

About the Author

Tall Paul is the pen name for Paul Drury.  He was nicknamed Tall Paul decades ago and for some reason it stuck.  Tall Paul performed on stage as a singer/song writer and has written articles for various newspapers throughout the Midwest.  As his sons grew into young men, they and all their friends referred to him as Tall Paul and thus a fitting pseudonym for a book about the life of his youngest son.  His cowboy background gives him his western flair, humor and “cut to the chase” writing style.  A single father of three boys, Tall Paul is well grounded and writes with compassion and understanding.
