Covers bright and crisp, a very nice copy/pictorial dust jacket (minimal rubbing of jacket). Quarto. Profusely illustrated in color and black and white by the author "In this book is a variety of writings that tell of the cowboy's rigging, the cowboy today, and why the high heels, the big hat and such like, along with experiences in narrow escapes that's all in a day's riding. I'm not stretching the truth in none and all can be proved in most every day of the cowboy's life. ... I can tell a lie with a grin while making a horse trade but I can't write fiction and as far as my writing being in cowboy vernacular, as some say, it strikes me as being only as anybody would talk who got his raising and education outside, and where university roofs is the sky and the floors prairie sod" - Will James (from the dust jacket.
