Echoes of The Old West
McGough, the author of Beyond the Far Ridge, tells more about his life in the most isolated Rocky Mountain high country and of the people and animals that make it memorable. There was Harry, who worked with horses his whole life. Polly a special little girl, and Nell, a woman who became important to Harry. Harry also had special animals in his life: a kitten named Pansy and a horse named Amigo. You'll feel like Harry is an old friend. And there's Spider, a horse Ed has a very special relationship with. It might be defined as part kinship, part mystery. You'll meet Speck, a border collie brought to the mountain as a puppy who had to learn to get along with Spider, Tasha, the German shepherd, and Maggie, the cat.
These stories and more fill this wonderful book written as if Ed is speaking directly to the reader in the language and experience of an old cowhand.
