Wild Cow Tales by Ben K. Green

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.”

About the Author

Ben K. Green, a native of Cumby, Texas, was the kind of 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 books include Wild Cow Tales; The Village Horse Doctor, West of the Pecos; and Some More Horse Tradin’.

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.
