This set contains two of Andy Adams' enjoyable tales of life on the cattle trail of the American West. Adams was one of the most authentic of the classic western writers, bringing firsthand experience to his depictions of cowhands, rogues, and other remarkable characters on the frontier. Volume two includes two tales that highlight Adams unique and subtle brand of humor: "Seigerman's Percent", in which three cow punchers come up with an ingenious way to make ends meet during the slack winter period between cattle drives; and "Bad Medicine", the tale of a "Down East" moneybags who learns the folly of trying to ramrod a cattle drive himself.
