About this title

Synopsis:

Ben K. Green takes us back to the deep Southwest and the never-a-dull-moment years he spent as a practicing horse doctor along the Pecos and the Rio Grande. With precious little formal schooling but a perfect corral-side manner and plenty of natural wit, Green became the first to hang up a shingle in the trans-Pecos territory. Hear him tell the tales of his struggles with mean stockmen, yellowweed fever, banditos, poison hay, and “drouth.” His canny mix of science and horse sense when treating animals “that ain’t house pets” is 100-proof old time pleasure.

About the Author:

A veterinarian in the far Southwest for much of his life, Ben K. Green retired to ranch in Texas until his death in 1974.
