Overview

"These is some a them stories what is wrote to be read out loud. And some of what is in here, just don't make no sense...except for if you got a sprig a alfalfa a hanging twixt your teeth, a pair a worn down Cowboy boots on your feet, and the smell of leather or horses somewhere near by."

Excerpts:

Chapter 1 "Nose" "...none of us ever asked him what he used to be called since it was a pretty sore subject for him to talk about."

Chapter 4 "Dying For Your Beliefs" "...the West wasn't nothing but brave men and stalwart women out there a taming the untamed...why this wasn't no more based on fact than a buffalo can fly." Chapter 6 "Scratching Out a Living" "Real Cowboys were a might bashful and didn't speak up unless they was spoke to." Chapter 7 "Cowboys are Thinkers" "The actual thing of it is, that a Cowboy is one of God's few creatures what spends most of his life just sitting and thinking." Chapter 10 "Promises of Partners" "Well, a Cowboy's promise, like these partners had made each other to meet again, was always meant sincere, and for that it was trusted." Chapter 11 "God's Pay" "It's times like these when a Cowboy kind of figures God Hisself just needs some entertaining." Chapter 12 "Hop'n and Poke'n" "Cowboy'n is a profession what ain't appreciated for its value unless you been one."
