Sinopsis:

STICK HORSES And Other Stories of Cowboy Life

HERE ARE TRUE-LIFE STORIES about cowboys, Indians, (ranch hands, sheriffs) and the milieu of characters that populated the legendary American West. McRae tells about his heroes and also the town vagabonds who came and went through the landscape of his growing up as a ranch kid and his adult life as a third-generation Montana rancher. Both humorous and poignant, the people and events in McRae's stories portray the living Cowboy Code. Enjoyable, can't-put-it-down reading in a conversational style from one of the West's best storytellers. Don't pass this one up!

McRae's cowboy poetry collection, The Cowboy Curmudgeon, has sold more than 25,000 copies.

McRae was the subject of a feature article in Range magazine in summer 2008.

McRae has been featured on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion.

He was the keynote speaker for the Elko Gathering's tenth anniversary and has performed his poems across a wide range of venues from cultural exchanges in Australia, Scotland, England, and various settings in the United States.

From the Inside Flap:

Stick horses and other stories of ranch life

Wallace McRae's reputation in the field of writing and performing cowboy poetry is legendary. His poem "Reincarnation" is the most recited of contemporary cowboy poetry and is considered a classic of the genre.

McRae is also a storyteller, and here he relates true-life stories about ranch hands, Indians, sheriffs and the milieu of characters that populated a ranching community of the legendary American West. McRae tells about his heroes and also the town vagabonds who came and went through the landscape of his growing up and growing wise through a lifetime on a Montana ranch.

This collection of tales weaves a tapestry of character sketches about people in a rather isolated, often insulated, rural community. The stories are genuine and honest, conversational and easy to read. At times humorous and poignant-and always engaging-this personal memoir from cowboy poetry's most beloved curmudgeon is a can't-put-it-down read.

Wallace McRae is a third-generation cattle rancher in southeastern Montana, and a widely acclaimed writer and performer of cowboy poetry. He was the recipient of a National Heritage Fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and was appointed to the National Endowment for the Arts Council by President Clinton. McRae has been featured on Garrison Keillor's A Prairie Home Companion and has performed across the United States and been featured in cultural exchanges in Australia, Scotland and England. McRae's poems have appeared in numerous cowboy poetry anthologies. He is the author of The Cowboy Curmudgeon and lives on the family's Rocker Six Ranch.
