Cowboys Are a Separate Species

Cowboys Are A Separate Species - John R. Erickson This book is by the same author who writes the "Hank the Cowdog" books, which are big favorites in our home. (We love the audio books he does also, because he does voices for all the characters, and even sings!) Erickson collected articles he wrote for various magazines and newspapers and published them in this book. They are worth reading. If you are familiar with ranching in the northern Texas panhandle, then you'll get a good chuckle out of reading about what OTHERS have done that you might have also done in the past. If you are not familiar with the ranching life, then prepare to enjoy a window view on the difficulties and joys of life out in the weather every day surrounded by cranky machinery and crazy cows and surly horses.
