    One thought on “The Best Cowboy Stories Ever Told (Best Stories Ever Told)”

    1. Not The Best Cowboy Stories Ever Told. The stories compiled in this book appeared to be more realistic than most, and the settings were pretty accurate but I didn't find the majority of the stories to be entertaining. I was really disappointed in the book because most of the authors are renowned professionals, and I anticipated the stories reflecting their reputations.

    2. OK, if you want history rather than fictionAs a collection of "stories", this is okay only if you realize they mean a little fiction and a lot of memoir. As I really wanted fiction, this was a drawback. Even as fiction, it falls short since many of the fiction entries are merely sections of longer works, and do not therefore stand well on their own.

    3. It's hard to rate a book of stories by various authors, as obviously the quality between stories vary widely. I was smart with this book of short stories and took a year to read it, reading a book, then a story, then a book, etc. There were short stories, what seemed to chapters out of longer books, and essays. Some were really good, some were bad, most were mediocre.The ones I really liked were Abilene in 1868 by Joseph McCoy, The Kid by Water Noble Burns, The Round Up by Theodore Roosevelt, An [...]

    4. I gave up on this book several stories in. If these are the best stories, I'd hate to see what didn't make the cut. A lot of the stories seemed to just be rambling recollections by old cowboys. I read a few pages of the Karl May story as it was more of an actual story, but eventually gave it up. Not a great read.
