RAWHIDE MEN by Kenneth- Ed. Fowler


Email this review


This collection of superior Western tales depends as much upon character and authenticity as melodrama, even when the story concerns horse thieves. The styles are light and crisp, often funny, and dance like a tin can ticked by slugs. Typewriter traildrivers include Omar Barker, Tom W. Blackburn, John Prescott, Ernest Haycox and others, all members of the Western Writers of America. Funniest tale is Saddle or Nothing, about a naive teenager blithely riding with rustlers who do all their herding by moonlight... From the old Collier's, Argosy and S.E.P. corrals.
