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
Aself-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.
