Description

They’re all Calder born-and Calder bred. Chase Calder stepped from the driver’s side and unhurriedly turned up the sheepskin collar of his coat against the keening wind.

They’re all Calder born-and Calder bred. Like his father and his father’s father, the reins of the Triple C Ranch were in his hands. His grip had to be firm enough to curb the unruly, sure enough to direct the operations, and steady enough to ride out the rough patches. Authority had rested long on his shoulders, and he had learned to carry it well.

There goes Ty Calder’s old ma. No, you’ll always be Chase Calder, she insisted, but there was a part of her that knew he was right.

All the headstones bore the name Calder, including the newest, inscribed with the words Mary Elizabeth Calder, My Beloved Maggie. Ty felt keenly the absence of his father, the one who mourned her passing the most. A slim, softly gloved hand slipped inside the crook of his elbow.

Kensington expanded their relationship with Dailey in 2002, when she contracted for three more hardcover novels about the Calder family and an additional mass market original novel.

I really enjoyed Calder Born, Calder Bred as a single book and as a generational series. Ty pretty much turned outlike to his father, Cal. For a series, Janet Dailey did a fantastic job. I have enjoyed all of her books in this series, as a series and as individual books. I come from a farming community, as a young girl, and their were lots of ranches around us. She hit the nail on the head with the way the family career in ranching is done, or at least to the way it was done back then.

If you buy this book, you need to start at the beginning of the series. The series is fabulous to see the family through many generations and the changes to each. I read this series every year. I've been reading the Calder series every year since I was 30. Wish Dailey would write more.

I enjoy this artist and books written. The spelling errors are unforgivable. This detracts from the enjoyment of the story line.

I read this series several years ago when it only had six books . Since discovering that is now has eleven, I had no choice but to start over with book one. I just Love Love Love it. I especially like that each book moves on to the next generation. One thing I have noticed is that the proof readers need proof readers. Book five has absolutely too many typographical errors, and for me this is one thing that is very annoying. But I'll look over them and keep on reading. Janet Dailey is a great author. Her publisher should use better proof readers.

This is Montana, the vast, wild west where the men are MEN and the women are well, um, not very believable or useful.
Ty Calder was not raised on the vast Triple C ranch owned by his father Chase Calder, but comes back as a teenager to learn ranching and how to survive in this sometimes inhospitable land. He learns a lot from the tough, single-minded ranch hands and his father and also from Jessy O'Rourke , a tom-boy with a crush on Ty. Ty goes away to college in Austin, where he develops a fixation on the beautiful Tara Lee, who is the daughter of one of Chase Calder's business associates.
The men are constantly getting into brawls, or getting drunk, or considering infidelity; and the women are either quiet, timid help-mates, or femme fatales, or, like Jessy, trying to emulate the real men. A typical line is when one of the ranch hands says of Ty's sister, "Cat has some growing up to do; She's still too spoiled to make a good wife." I suppose he's got to break and brand her before he can marry her!
The dialogue is sometimes pretty sappy, such as when Ty's father says "You can only afford to have one mistress outside your marriage, Ty. And that mistress is the land. She'll give you all the satisfaction, and heartache, that you can handle."
In spite of the subservient roles played by women, and the stilted, unrealistic dialogue, I was intrigued by the plot and curious how Ty would resolve the conflict between his passion for Tara and his need for the solidity and understanding of Jessy.

For a series, Janet Dailey did a fantastic job. I have enjoyed all of her books in this series, as a series and as individual books.
The research and knowledge she puts in her books about ranching is fantastic. I come from a farming community, as a young girl, and their were lots of ranches around us. She hit the nail on the head with the way the family career in ranching is done, or at least to the way it was done back then.
I love the Calder series which is why I bought Calder Born Calder Bred. I paid almost 18 dollars for this book from Amazon.com and was very disappointed in the quality. I don't understand why this book cost so much more than the other 'Calder' books. The text is so small I can barley read it. Not only that but it is typed on over sized pages so it doesn't fit the page well at all. My poor rating is because of this...the story itself was wonderful.
