Cowboy Humor of Alfred Henry Lewis by Alfred Henry Lewis, Frederic Remington

If you like your humor ladylike and gentlemanly, sweet and gentle, reader this book ain't fer ya. Nope! This book of funny wildly humorous cowboy stories is raw and robust, tough and of the frontier! And it accurately reflects, through humor, the life of that time and place. You'll meet Tuscon Jennie, Texas Thompson, Doc Peets, Cherokee Hall and many more. Then you'll enter the Red Light bar at "first drink time," or "second drink time" (that's how they measure the hours in Wolfville where all the good folks live), or you'll buy supplies at The New York Store and eat at the O.K. Restauraw. You'll delight in the poetic spelling, imaginative language and find their police force, "The Strangler" efficient "more than somewhat."

Doc Peets will treat your hangover or gunshot wound unless, of course, it's fatal when the cowboys'll gather to "shout you home to heaven by a straight trail."

And if you "beat the ondertaker" by unfair means, "The Stranglers" will take over and you'll beat no more! They shoot straight and true in Wolfville and their life will leave you feeling good "a whole lot."
