Great American Cowboy StoriesBook - 2019
"There's nothing more American than a good cowboy story. Collected in these pages are eighteen of the finest fictional works and true narratives about life on the range -- each of which has stood the test of time. Covering all corners of the great Western expanse, these stories feature cowpokes of every ilk -- Anglo men, Mexicans, women -- and colorful characters, such as the Cisco Kid, a surprisingly coldhearted killer created by O. Henry. Some of the stories praise the legendary cowpuncher, while others poke fun. Some are lively tales of adventure and romance, while others offer rare glimpses into the real-life world of the cattleman. Each will transport you to an all but vanished place and time."--Page 4 of cover.
