"We are fortunate in having this minute compilation of cowboy lore." — Library Journal
"Quite likely the best book of its kind to appear . . . written by a veteran cowboy in colorful but explicit prose, and providing just about as complete a cow country manual as you could want. . . . A greenhorn could almost set up ranching by absorbing Mr. Fay's lore, and western fans will find this book a treasure-house of information." — Springfield Republican
A self-described horse wrangler, bronc breaker, and rough-string rider for cow outfits from Canada to the Mexican border, old-time cowboy Fay Ward simply yet vividly describes every detail of the working cowhand's life and job.
Want to know how to throw a half-diamond hitch and wield a branding iron? How about learning how to trap wild mustangs and rig and use a saddle? Interested in the recipe for S. B. stew? This authoritative manual explains it all.
Illustrated with 600 drawings and diagrams by the author, this is a captivating and informative read for working cowboys, dude ranch wranglers, armchair bronc-busters, and anyone interested in cowboy life and lore.
