Life in the Saddle is a collection of stories told by the men and women who lived the cowboy life. The stories told of and by cowboys have always attracted an interested audience. The culture that developed around the cowboy came with its own manner of speech, dress code and morals. However, there is little distinction between being a cowboy and working as a cowboy. A cowboy isn’t just doing a job, but living a lifestyle. It’s the way their children are raised. It’s putting in an honest day’s work. It is helping the neighbors. There are horses to feed, fences to mend and cattle to market all while trying to stretch a constantly strained budget. It is these stories that are presented in this book. The men and women in this book tell stories of hardship, endurance and great wrecks from a point of view that has to be earned.
