Adding to the realism is the diction of the time period and the west; the dialogue is extremely ungrammatical, but it is the general style is of the Victorian era of a hundred years ago. The characters are written realistically, and they are not developed into some kind of "super-hero," but rather men who brave the elements and have their own vices and weaknesses. The setting and the description of the dusty trails of Texas are so realistic that you will catch yourself coughing from the dust blowing past you and into the arroyo. As with many books of this period, the book often contains references and stereotypes that may possibly offend some readers; however, it is true to the time period in which it was written. Nonetheless, it remains a rare gem of Western humor, action and adventure.
In "The Man From Bar-20," Cassidy's friend, Johnny Nelson, left the ranch itching for even greater adventure. After wandering a while, he joined the CL Ranch and discovered a lot more than he bargained for. Cattle rustlers - gasp! He found a hidden valley between Twin Buttes with over 200 head of the CL Ranch cattle rebranded QE. Nelson encounters the gang of rustlers who are out to steal the rest of CL's beef. Of course, in any good western, you need a good villain; here is the country's fastest gun-fighter looking to cut him down.
If you like historical fiction and novels about the old West, then the Hoppy books are for you. As for myself, I will be searching out and reading "The Coming of Cassidy," which I believe may be the first in the series. (If not, I'm reading it anyway!)
