Overview

Tales of Cowpunchers, Cattle Drives, and Caballeros There's nothing more American than a good cowboy story. Collected in these pages are eighteen of the finest fictional works and true narratives about life on the range, all having stood the test of time. Covering all corners of the great Western expanse, these stories feature cowpokes of every ilk - anglo males, Mexicans, women - and colorful characters such as the Cisco Kid, a surprisingly cold-hearted killer created by O. Henry. Some of the stories praise the legendary cowpuncher, while others poke fun. Some are lively tales of adventure and romance, while others offer rare glimpses into the real-life world of the cattleman. Each will transport you to an all-but-vanished place and time.With contributions from:Owen Wister; Zane Grey; Isabella L. Bird; Theodore Roosevelt; O. Henry; William MacLeod Raine; Frederic Remington; F. R. Buckley; Clarence E. Mulford; B. M. Bowers; Frank Benton; Bill Nye; Stewart Edward White; Eugene Manlove Rhodes; Emerson Hough
