The recollections of a cowpuncher, and kept, very successfully, in the spirit of the man who told his story. From a crazy youth with hooligan spirits, to driving cattle from Texas to Montana, working for various outfits, never knowing a ""decent"" woman, in and out of hot water -- and the troubles in securing the girl he wanted to marry. Filled with yarns of Indians, cowboys, drinking, wenching, riding herd -- details of the life and background he loved. Darn good authentic Western material, disarming in its simplicity,and with a note of authenticity to those who know what he is talking about. Grand reading.
