About the Author:

Bob Kinford has worked across the west as a cowboy and horse trainer for over 35 years. He currently works on a ranch in west Texas with his wonderful wife Catie and their son Dakota.

Review:

Good cowboy humor usually is wry, dry and witty. Beter yet a top cowboy humorist has no fear and takes good-natured potshots at his own or any other large ego that comes within his sights. however his true talent lies in showing us how to share the laugh when we shoot ourselves, rather than someone else in the foot. In Cowboy Romance Bob Kinford has mastered the genre.

The book subtitle itself is a subtle stab at "all the Madison Avenue and Hollywod hype" about the romance of the American West. On the realistic one hand, Kinford knows there's nothing romantic about horse sweat, hornflies and a lot of the other givens in the ranch cowboy's experience. On the romantic other hand the author somewhat proudly apreciates the magnificent appeal the West and his lifestyle hold for so many and wants to share it with them from his perspective.

As a result, Kinford makes it easy for anyone, including those who aren't ranch raised to follow the action. "Cowboy Literate", the first of his essays, entertains as it explains working cowboy terminology used throughout the book. With that as a foundation, almost any reader will be able to apreciate Kinford's other commentaries: "Da Bull and da Proffessor," "Bureau of Lost Minds," "As The Hairbrains Turn" and more.

Therein lies the appeal of Cowboy Romance: Kinford never makes his reader feel ignorant for not knowing the West as he knows it, nor does he hold himself above the reader as a last, great icon of the American West. Instead he puts tongue in cheek and dares the reader to find the romance in his west. -- Western Horseman- March 1999

If you're reading this review you must like COWBOY MAGAZINE, and if you like this magazine then you're gonna like this book. Bob Kinford has written short stories for COWBOY MAGAZINE in the past and we've got some scheduled for future issues. Kinford has a good way of telling about incidents that happen to cowboys and this book is final proof.

Every cowboy has stories to tell and Kinford is no exception. In this neat little voulumne, nicely illustrated by cartoonist James Dorrance, Kinford has included 31 cowboy tales about everything from horse wrecks, to wannabe cowboys, to veterinarians to working with mules. Its fun and it's funny. We wish all cowboys could publish their stories like this. -- Cowboy Magazine- Summer 1998
