Summary

Summary

From the same corral that produced the widely loved "Horse Tradin'," Ben K. Green has rounded up fifteen new yarns filled with the ornery yet irresistible style that has earned his books a place in classic Western Americana. "Some More Horse Tradin'" recounts the dealings of a whole slew of craggy old-timers and rangy characters. See them match wits as they trade well-bred mares, snorty-like range colts, and used-to-be-bad horses from the tumbleweed plains. Admire the old-time knavery, skill, and salesmanship in such tales as " Gittin'Even, " " Brethren Horse Traders, " " Mule Schoolin', " and " Water Treatment and the Sore-Tailed Bronc." Ride along with Green, and he'll tell you what he knows about horseflesh--but keep your wits about you, and hang on to your wallet.

Library Journal Review

These are two of a handful of books Green released in the 1970s in which he recalled his years as a Texas veterinarian. The books are full of colloquial language and tall yarns about horses, mules, and all that cowboy stuff. Think of him as a Western James Herriot. Each volume contains a handful of stories with simple illustrations. (c) Copyright 2010. Library Journals LLC, a wholly owned subsidiary of Media Source, Inc. No redistribution permitted.
