Some of the poems really hit home today, just like in the one titled Cable Ready. Then there are those that are a little sad, others that are funny, and others that are just about the everyday life of the traditional cowboy. The real cowboy ceased to exist by about 1910 because of things like freight trains and barbed wire. Freight trains eliminated the need for long cattle drives, and barbed wire was able to keep a herd of cattle confined indefinitely.This eBook has 33 poems and two short stories:INDEX OF POEMSTitleThe Black StallionThe Ranch HandymanWork HistoryThe Rodeo ExperienceA Worn FriendshipBackfireCable ReadyPackin’ A RodThe BreakdownToo Tough To DieUnscheduled DepartureUnder The Mylar DomeThe Slickers Losing HandThe Cowboys Personal PossessionsThe Legendary West Texas Oil WellA Faded HorseA Cowboy’s LamentA Fresh StartDown Home ComfortEchoesJust Passin’ ThroughMy Friend DocRemembranceThe RookieThe DudeThe Best JobThe Best Seat In The WestThe Greenhorns Attention To DetailThe Perils Of A Chuck Wagon CookThe Ranch Hands Dental AppointmentThe Rocket RideWhen Bad Luck Rears Its Ugly HeadBlame (Just an old Cowboy Saying)Short Story: The Legend of Mongrel SmithShort Story: The Phantom StampedeThe Cowboys of today have a relatively easy job considering the Internet, pick-up trucks, ATVs and other items that the OLD cowboy didnt have access to.
