Book Description

It used to be that cowboy tales were told around a campfire while partaking of rich Arbuckle’s coffee with a bunch of like-minded waddy boys of the open range. The stories these rough and tumble cowboys told, while certainly meant to entertain and to amuse, were also meant to make a point or illustrate a moral lesson; as such, they were important teaching tools. The short stories in The Old Cowboy’s Box are written in this oral tradition.

Therefore, they are as comfortable in the spoken word form as they are in the written variety. In fact, these short little tales have a particular sound of their own when read aloud. And, this is especially true, for the cowboy poems in this volume.

So, if you like a good cowboy story with a bit of open range reasoning and morals lessons in the old cowboy way, then I believe you might just like the cowboy tales and poems on the pages of The Old Cowboy’s Box.

And, if you can manage a good Texas drawl, then you might want to try a read one of these tales to your children or Grandpa. I bet they will enjoy it as much as you do.

A good collection of short stories of old cowboys. Some sound a bit dated but they are all well written and entertaining.

All in all, a good read.

We looked forward to reading the next story each night. My kids enjoyed it as much as I did. Interesting,fun, full of twists; we only wish it didn't end so soon.
