"With humor and pathos author Schaefer chronicles the passing of the Old West. In loosely connected episodes he vividly portrays the life and times of working cowboy Walsh, side-kick Chet Rollins, and other memorable characters of the Slash Y. Here are shootings, cattle drives, winter storms, and spring floods; cattle rustling, romancin' and horse breaking. Man and beast, pushed to the limits of their endurance, survive or perish."--"Kliatt"

By the time I got to the end of this book I felt like I knew Monte Walsh and I was sad that I had never met him.
Towards the end of this book I started thinking about Lazarus Long's saying: "When a place gets crowded enough to require ID's, social collapse is not far away. It is time to go elsewhere." Monte would have agreed.
And if you don't cry at the end of this book, you aren't human.
Whilst trying to purchase that movie for a 70 year old friend of mine, I found this book, and tried it. The character development is far stronger in the book, and I would have to judge it at least twice as good as the movie. These characters remind me of the 'boys' I was around at my grandfather's ranch, before the virus of political correctness laid waste to this once great land.
In the words of two other movies: "We're after men, and I wish to God that I was with them." (The Wild Bunch) "This was a good ol boy- the kind of ol boy who would find a neighbor's calf stuck in a bog, drop a loop over his neck, take him back to the neighbor's, and expect nothing in return except a 'thank you'. They ain't many of these old boys left, and we're going to miss them when they're gone." (Good Old Boys)
"He's still out there, riding fences; you just can't see him from the road." Buy this book- you won't regret it.

Not what I expected.
The details of life in the old west are probably authentic.
In all a sad tale.
