Overview


In thirteen stories full of rope burns and brush scratches, the author of the classic Horse Tradin’ tells of the days when he made a specialty of catching wild cows.
 
Ben K. Green calls himself a “stove-up old cowboy,” and readers of this book will learn soon enough where the broken bones came from. Green tells of his adventures with wild steers, sharing with readers the years he worked in thorny brush and canyon country delivering those animals that were too wily or too wild for the normal roundup. Finding them was hard, even dangerous, work. Few cowboys looked for such chores. Green declares, “I got real good at it, but of course in those days I didn’t know any better.”

Meet the Author


Ben K. Green may have not known better than to circulate around the West with a little remuda of cow-wise ponies hunting out recalcitrant old steers, but he certainly knew how to tell these stories. A veterinarian in the far Southwest for much of his life, Green retired to a ranch in Texas until his death in 1974.

    If you want a book you can't put down!!!

    This book is great. It took 4 days for me to read the whole thing. He takes you back to the days of him being a young man starting his life as a cowboy. Very great book.
