For many years, Western Horseman readers have begun their journeys through each issue by, strangely enough, starting at the back. That's because the back page has been occupied by the humorous ramblings of America's best-selling comedic veterinarian, Baxter Black. This book is a collection of these observations, accompanied by the original illustrations that appeared in the magazine. This look back at 15 years of the best of Baxter is sure to bring smiles to the faces of cowboy philosophers everywhere.
Cowboy poet Baxter Black is a former large animal veterinarian who practiced for 13 years in the mountain west. He has since made a living telling cowboys stories about themselves in his columns, radio shows and on stage at county fairs poetry gatherings, and rodeos across the country.
