Story time just got better with Prime Book Box, a subscription that delivers hand-picked children’s books every 1, 2, or 3 months. I bought this book as a way of making my own story more authentic and believable. There is nothing I hate worse then to be reading a historical novel and suddenly have one of the characters say something that would not have been said during that time period. That really pulls me at least out of the story, not what I want as a writer to do in my own story.

I enjoy the things inside the covers of this book.

Artifice can be deadly, not to mention boring. Ramon Adams, in giving a thorough account of the lives of real cowboys, from such technical concerns as ropes, roundups, and brands to the more subjective such as religion, ethics, and temperament, spoils his results unduly by assuming the speech patterns of the men he's describing. Thus, "One cowhand had jes' come back from a certain ranch where he'd been reppin' for his brand"; and, "One steer switchin' his tail might hit `nother in the eye with it." The "g" is dropped from all words ending (endin') with one and many other slang expressions pepper the text. It begins to sound phony and trite very quickly. It's a shame, too, because the information Adams relates is comprehensive and detailed. It's true that many other such books get into specifics about the cowboy life, especially regarding his work with the cattle and his horses, but Adams goes beyond this and also deals with cowboy attitudes and personality traits - important in that they often contradict stereotypical cowboy features as presented by Hollywood. If only he had decided not to use that corny one-of-the-boys writing style.

Hell's fahr, Adams tells us like it really wuz. Bill Bonney did *not kill 21 men by the time he wuz twenny one. "Wild Bill" did *not kill 8 men at the Rock Creek Station, etc. etc.
The previous writer here did say Adams' info wuz on target, so mosey off to a good bookstore and pick up a copy of this right fine tome.
Adams grew up around the turn of the 20th century in the Texas area, so why shouldn't he explain in the way ol' cowhands woulda done in his time n' place?

p.s. Save a nugget, buy this entertainin' book right here at AMAZON

This arrived in good condition, as promised, and within 4 days of when it was ordered. The book is written in the language of the cowboy. It is informative and entertaining. Reading it is like being around the campfire after working cattle all day.
