THE BEST COWBOY STORIES EVER TOLD
Edited by Stephen Brennan

THE WILD WEST COMES ALIVE: SPURS, LASSOS, SHOOTOUTS, HORSES, RANCH LIFE, AND THE SWEEPING PLAINS OF THE WILD WEST THROUGH THE EYES OF TEDDY ROOSEVELT, MARK TWAIN AND OTHERS

What is it about cowboys that intrigue us? “Does he have a secret? Don’t we all?” asks Stephen Brennan in his introduction to The Best Cowboy Stories Ever Told (October 2011). “On balance, he’s a good man. And so we all reckon ourselves to be.” Explore this hearty collection of stories, each of which captures a different aspect of what it means to be a cowboy—the romance, the risk, the loneliness, and the spirit of adventure. Live the danger and the drama, experience the pride and the sheer fun. Get to know what the cowboy life is really like, and be swept away by these stories of adventure out in the open country.

The Best Cowboy Stories Ever Told continues the long tradition of American fascination with all things Wild West and cowboy-related. By bringing a variety of beloved names in cowboy literature together in one place, Brennan guarantees there will be a story for everyone in this collection:

·        Theodore Roosevelt
·        Frederic Remington
·        Mark Twain
·        Zane Grey
·        Andy Adams
·        And many others

With stories such as “How I Became a Cowboy,” “A Pair of Outlaws,” “Justice in the Saddle,” “Whisky,” and more, the stories collected in The Best Cowboy Stories Ever Told encompass all the grittiness of the cowboy’s life on the range—the good, the bad, and the ugly.
