A series of stories loosely connected by the narrative device of different speakers swapping yarns around the campfire at the end of each trail-riding day."A series of spirited tales emphasizing some phase of the life of the ranch, plains and desert, and all, taken together, forming a single sharply-cut picture of life in the far Southwest. All the tonic of the West is in this masterpiece of Stewart Edward White."

During all the rest of our trip they were to be our companions, the only constant factors in the tumult of lesser peaks, precipitous canons, and twisted systems in which we were constantly involved.

Enjoyed this book. It's a collection of stories about Cowboys, outlaws, sailors, and ranchers. Some are funny, some are serious, and at least one (the last one) is thoughtful and poignant. All interwoven with vivid descriptions of the old west. Read it, you'll like it.
