Falling From Horses is my second favorite book of 2014. This book has everything going for it; ranching in eastern Oregon, the Great Depression, and Hollywood movie-making. 

Young Bud Frazer has decamped from his hardscrabble ranching childhood to make his way in Hollywood as a stunt rider in the movies. Along the way he makes a friend of Lily, an aspiring screenwriter. Falling From Horses is filled with some of the finest writing this side of the Pecos. Sentence after sentence begs for rereading, they are so perfect, her choice of phrasing, so fresh. I didn't want this book to end.
