Harcover is clean and unmarked, very light edgewear and a little fading to edges, slightly cocked forward at spine. Jacket has light edgewear, scuffing and creasing to front flap, not price clipped. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; "Andy Russell was a master storyteller, and this collection of new and previously published tales evokes as if by magic the irresistible allure of the campfire. It’s not hard to imagine the starry sky above and the sound of the pack horses as they sleepily crop the grass nearby. Some of Andy’s tales are about his own youth. Others are part of western lore and the history of the west. Others concern those whose trails crossed his, or whose legends he heard over campfires long ago. Some of the stories dwell in the past, and others deal in the present. Some are about horses, grizzlies, owls, and other wildlife; some commemorate old mountain men or cunning city slickers. What all these yarns have in common is the unique style of the most celebrated of all Canadian cowboys, the inimitable Andy Russell. " [700] .
