"All In The Days Riding" was written and illustrated by Will James. This cowboy book was published by The World Publishing Company and copyrighted 1946. In his Preface, Mr. James writes, "In this book is a variety of writings that tell of the cowboy's riggings, the cowboy today, and wy the high heels, the big hat and such like, along with experiences in narrow escapes that's all in the day's riding. I can tell a lie with a grin while making a horse trade but I can't write fiction, and as far as my writing being in cowboy vernacular, as some say, it strikes me as being only as anybody would talk who got his raising and education outside, and where university roofs is the sky and the floors prairie sod"
Mr James has included his drawings of cowboy life throughout the book. It's a life depicted in all its challenges and outdoor interested from an era that has in most instances now passed us by. This vintage book is in very good condition. It has black cloth boards with gilded titles and decoration on the cover and spine. The book is 251 pages in length and measures approximately 9 1/2 inches by 6 1/2 inches. There is some very mild bumping on the cover. A large ink inscription is written on the first inside page with a smudge and a previous owner's name is location is written in ink on the title page (see photos). The book will be mailed Media Mail unless otherwise requested.
A wonderful glimpse of a cowboy's life and a great gift for any Western history buff or cowboy in your life.
