Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Baxter's first novel. Hey, Cowboy is a story about two rodeo cowboys and their adventures on the way to the National Finals Rodeo. That's what the story is about, but the book is about love — love of one's work, one's lifestyle, one's friends, and falling in love. Don't get me wrong. There's nothing sappy about this book. It's a wild and crazy, twisted and weird novel, unlike anything you've ever read.

Review:

"These low-humored, high-spirited adventures are related in breathless, exclamatory prose that proves more exhausting than edifying, making this a potential treat for rodeo rats only." Publishers Weekly

Review:

"Very funny, rowdy, and affectionate, with a bit of magic thrown in..." Library Journal

Review:

"In striving to depict the whole three-ring circus, Baxter only occasionally succeeds in capturing any of it....What's missing is focus and a more absorbing narrative line." Kirkus Reviews

Synopsis:

Picaresque, funny, and filled with colorful details about the life of today's rodeo cowboys, this is the first entry into fiction by Baxter Black, America's premier cowboy poet.

Synopsis:

America's favorite cowboy poet, NPR commentator, and "former large animal veterinarian" delights readers with a rip-roaring tale of today's Wild West, ruminating on such topics as the existence of second-rate guardian angels and the signifcance of the slow dance. NPR sponsorship.

About the Author

Baxter Black is the author of eleven volumes of cowboy poetry and the bestselling novel Hey Cowboy, Wanna Get Lucky? He is a regular commentator on National Public Radio and writes a weekly column, "On the Edge of Common Sense," which appears in newspapers nationwide.

This is good knee slapping, jaw dropping good old fashioned fun. To this day I use some of the phrases in this book. I love a good book that can make me chuckle, laugh and hold my belly. Baxter at his best. Anyone who reads this or has an opportunity to listen to the audio is in for a real treat. Try it. You won't be disappointed.
