Forlagets beskrivelse

The Good Old Boys and The Smiling Country pairs two wonderful novels by one of the most honored of all western writers, Elmer Kelton

The Good Old Boys
Hewey Calloway has a problem. He wants to be a footloose cowboy, endlessly wandering the land on horseback, but the open range of his childhood is slowly disappearing. Land is being parceled out, barbed-wire fences are springing up all over, and cars are replacing the horse as a mode of transportation. Swimming against the tide of ?progress,? Hewey begins to understand that the time of the cowboy is over, that the life he dreams of has become part of the past. He must find a new path to happiness?one that may require a great sacrifice.

The Smiling Country
It is now 1910 and Hewey Calloway?s freewheeling life is coming to an end?the fences, trucks, and automobiles he hates are even creeping in to remote Alpine in the ?smiling country? of West Texas. When he is badly injured trying to break a renegade horse, Hewey?s regrets over his lost love, schoolteacher Spring Renfro haunt him as he sees the loneliness that awaits him.
The Smiling Country is filled with humor, love, and the lore of the cowboy life at a time when the great, free, open ranges of the West were adjusting to a new, technological era.

Bibliotekernes beskrivelse
