Stick Horses and Other Stories of Ranch Life
Wallace McRae, author
McRae writes about true storeis of cowboys, Indians, ranch hands, sheriffs and the milieu of characters that populated the legendary American West. McRae tells about his heroes and town vagabonds who came and went through the landscape of his growing up as a ranch kid and his adult life as a third-generation Montana rancher.
Both humorous and poignant, the people and events in McRae's stories portray the living Cowboy Code. Enjoyable, can't-put-it-down reading in a conversational style from one of the West's best storytellers. Don't pass this one up! McRae is one of the "stars" of the granddaddy of all cowboy poetry gatherings in Elko, Nevada. He was the keynote speaker for the Elko Gathering's tenth anniversary and has performed his poems across a wide range of venues from cultural exchanges in Australia, Scotland, England, and various settings in the United States. McRae's reputation in the field of writing and performing cowboy poetry is unsurpassed. His poem "Reincarnation" is the most recited of contemporary cowboy poetry.
