Set in Colorado, New Mexico, and Arizona, the stories are a loosely tied string of old timer's yarns with a continuing cast of engaging characters, whom Kiskaddon avoids reducing to cowboy stereotypes. They include, as Siems describes them, "Kiskaddon himself as the character Shorty. As a common waddy with a small man's feistiness and a young man's mischief, Shorty encounters the wicked world with a succession of companions: Bill, high-headed and a bit of an outlaw; Rildy Briggs, untamable and unstoppable young cowgirl; and Ike, an old-fashioned dandy and 'a very fortunate person.' More or less in the background is the Boss-actually a series of Bosses-generally affectionately respected as long as he remains democratic in his dealings with the waddies. Buffoonery is provided by a succession of pompous characters, from townspeople who look down their noses on wild, unwashed waddies to professors from the East who have read books on how ranches should be run."

I bought one of two, copies left in hard-back form (at time of purchase). This will be a birthday gift to my son in June, for his 51'st.
Based on the reading of Shorty's Yarns, I have to say that this copy will become a family heirloom, and, additionally, has prompted a search for a copy of Open Range. Thank you very much.

This book on Kiskaddon is more than a nostalgic collection of cowboy poetry. It offers several short stories that help us learn what life was like in the early twentieth century. The stories show cowboys poking fun at each other in an era before there was television and computers to amuse people. As you read the stories and poems you begin to formalize a picture of whom these people are. The stories give us a wonderful snapshot of a period of American life through the eyes of an editor who has caught the period in the works of Kiskaddon and his illustrator Fields.
