The beloved NPR commentator, popular syndicated columnist, and authentic cowboy poet offers a hilarious collection of ranch wit and wisdom.
From the Publisher:
Described by The Washington Post as being able "to make a dead man sit up and laugh," Baxter Black--veterinarian/doctor turned poet/columnist/raconteur--has been making living people laugh with his novel (Hey Cowboy, Wanna Get Lucky?), syndicated columns, appearances on The Tonight Show, and regular pieces on National Public Radio. Now this complete illustrated collection of the commentaries that have aired on NPR's Morning Edition presents Black's latest dose of medicine for animal and human alike. Ranging from a riotous account of two cowboys chasing down a cow in the nude to a very touching piece about a rancher who loses his wife to cancer and finds out the true worth of his friends and neighbors, Cactus Tracks & Cowboy Philosophy brings together Black's best-known and most adored work.The beloved NPR commentator, popular syndicated columnist, and authentic cowboy poet offers a hilarious collection of ranch wit and wisdom.
Annotation:
Cowboy whimsy wrapped in rustic rhythms that make Robert W. Service seem like free verse, along with enough wranglin' stories, ridin' and ropin' roundelays, and Stetson schtick to choke a horse. Most of these pieces originated on "All Things Considered" and other National Public Radio shows, where they provided the aural texture for half-hour segments.

Praise

Kirkus Reviews
"Cowboy Black throws the bull, the cow, the stallion, the mare, common barnyard critters, and even the kitchen sink into these pieces, with assurance and, generally, to good effect. Just put on yer five-buckle overshoes, watch where you step, and join the fun." 07/01/97

Atlantic Monthly
"...[G]enuinely amusing." - Phoebe-Lou Adams January 1998
