 About the Book 

Noted cowboy poet Kiskaddons humorous, realistic prose sketches if cowboy life were almost lost, but they are in their own right gems of literary Americana on a par with his poems. Originally published in the Western Livestock Journal between 1932 and 1939, the short stories drew on Kiskaddons own experience of ranching in the Southwest and Australia to portray real life on the range. Bill Siems has recovered these stories and compiled and introduced them in this new collection, to which he has added a selection of Kiskaddons poems and the original drawings that accompanied them, by Katherine Field, a fine, underappreciated western artist.
