Pretty much everything we need to know about getting by in life is contained in the sage sayings in this book. One of my favorites is, "Never drink downstream from the herd." Some are simply funny. Others are downright insightful. This is the "Confusius says" of the American West. It makes a good gift, and the perfect thing to pass around at a gathering for laughs and conversation. --Christopher Bonn Jonnes, author of Wake Up Dead.
