Each of these twenty authentic tales, hilariously funny and prickly as chaparral brush, is a true account the corrals, livery stables, and wagonyards of the cattlemen's West. They are as dusty as a cow path, and they are filled with the drawls and humor of the old horse traders themselves.
About 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.
