The Studhorse Man Vintage Horse Book By Robert Kroetsch

The Studhorse Man Vintage Horse Book

By Robert Kroetsch
Publisher: Simon & Schuster, 1969 1st US Printing, SBN: 671-20523-4
Hazard Lepage, the last of the studhorse men, sets out to breed his rare blue stallion, Poseidon. A lusty trickster and a wayward knight, Hazard’s outrageous adventures are narrated by Demeter Proudfoot, his secret rival, who writes this story while sitting naked in an empty bathtub. In his quest to save his stallion’s bloodline from extinction, Hazard leaves a trail of anarchy and confusion. Everything he touches erupts into chaos necessitating frequent convalescences in the arms of a few good women–excepting those of Martha, his long-suffering intended. Told with the ribald zeal of a Prairie beer parlor tall tale and the mythic magnitude of a Greek odyssey, The Studhorse Man is Robert Kroetsch’s celebration of unbridled character set against the backdrop of a rough-and-ready Alberta emerging after the war. Winner of the Governor General’s Award for Fiction. This is a compelling saga that will move all readers. Removed from library, it has plastic cover over dust jacket, marks from removal of back card holder, yellowed tape/marks, & yellowed edges.

By Philip Weber & Stanley M. Jepsen
Publisher: A.S. Barnes & Co., 1979, ISBN: 0-498-02118-1

A wonderful collection of mostly black & white photos, with a few color, set apart in chapters by decades to show the progression of the horse-drawn era. For people who love horses this book is a precious document carefully complied by the authors. It preserves a collection of photographs of workhorses from about 1890 to the mid 1970s. The book is more than just a static display. The accompanying text makes the pictures into meaningful illustrations of life when humans and horses were everyday partners. Comes with full color dust jacket. Dust jacket shows some wear, mainly to edges. Signed & dedicated to previous(& only) owner by author in 1982 by the author inside front cover. Minor yellowing to pages. Believe this is out of print.

Tons of full color & full page photos. Great coffee table type book for lovers of draft horses. Comes with full color dust jacket.

Baxter Black Hey, Cowgirl, Need A Ride? Commentary By NPR's Cowboy Poet & Former Large Animal Vet Humorous Horse Book
By Baxter Black
Publisher: Crown Publishers, 1st Edition 2005, ISBN: 0-609-61091-0
Baxter Black, the world’s bestselling cowboy poet, author of Cactus Tracks & Cowboy Philosophy, Horseshoes, Cowsocks & Duckfeet, and public radio’s favorite former large animal veterinarian, is back in the saddle with a hilarious new book, a sequel to Hey, Cowboy, Wanna Get Lucky? Two years after he won the average at the Las Vegas National Finals Rodeo by riding Kamikaze, the world’s most unridable bull, Lick is down on his luck, working on a ranch in the remote Nevada desert with Al Bean, an ornery old cowboy. When Teddie Arizona, woman of mystery, crawls out of the wreckage of her plane and into their lives with a $5,000,000 secret, things start to get interesting. When T.A.’s “husband,” F. Rank Pantaker, dispatches his henchmen to retrieve the money, and the girl, Lick and Al find themselves trying to outrun the bad guys and protect a damsel in distress. Is T.A. out to cheat her cheatin’ husband, or is she really just trying to stop an illegal scheme cooked up by F. Rank and the infamous Ponce de Crayon, Vegas’s most glamorous tiger tamer? Is she playing Lick, or is it love? Will Al Bean’s cockeyed plan, an able assist from Cody, Lick’s cowboy sidekick, a brigade of old-time rodeo reunioneers, and twenty miles of duct tape be enough to stop F. Rank’s nefarious schemes, reform a career party girl, and change the hearts and minds of ten of the world’s most thrill-seeking billionaires? Can Cody keep Lick from climbing onto raging bull Kamikaze’s back one more time? Can true love triumph over shoot-outs at the not-so-okay corral and close encounters with white tigers? Hey, this is Baxter Black, what do you think? With its colorful cast of characters, rip-roaring humor, and inventive language, this caper will have you riding high long after it gallops to a thunderously satisfying conclusion. First edition, new with full color dust jacket. Minor shop wear from store handling.
