Meet the Author

Ben K. Green, a native of Cumby, Texas, was the kind of a Westerner who almost crawled out of the cradle and into a saddle, spending his childhood, adolescence and young manhood on horseback. He studied veterinary medicine in the United States and abroad and practiced in the Far Southwest in one of the last big horse counties in North America. When he eventually gave up his practice and research, he returned to Cumby where he lived, raising good horses and cattle until his death in 1974. His other books are Wild Cow Tales; The Village Horse Doctor, West of the Pecos; and Some More Horse Tradin’.

Really good read. Makes you wish you could have lived at this time, when horses were an important part of everyday life. This country wouldn't be what it is today with out horses & mules, and people like Ben Green.

Nostalgic read of an era long gone but never forgotten. If you have ever bought sold or in any way had horse 'dealins then this is a must read. And if you had a father from Texas and want to remember that quiet Texan drawl and wry sense of humour then treat yourself to a Ben K. Green book. Enjoyable, enlightening, historical and just plain fun, this book will make you wish you had been there. Next best is Horse Tradin' and a comfy armchair.

A fascinating glimpse into times when horses were important in America. I have lent this book to several who have no interest in horses, and they have subsequently bought all of Ben Green's other books, just like I have.
