From the front flap: “Harry Webb calls his cowboy life, ‘good, bad, and plain hell.’ And the stories he tells prove it. Harry rode with Buffalo Bill’s Wild West Show, worked as a wrangler for the Lubin Moving Picture Company of Philadelphia, broke horses for soldiers fighting in World War I, played fiddle for dances, and trapped rabid predators for the United States government. And then he did what he had always dreamed of—built a cattle and sheep ranch in Nevada’s high desert. The stories here are told in the language of the day—authentic and historically accurate. They cover love, hate, jealousy, generosity, greed, murder, theft, insobriety, tenacity, foolishness, and many other peculiar human traits. It is the American West. It is raw and real. And it is all Harry.”
