The Dirty Cowboy
by Amy Timberlake
With keen determination, a cowboy saddles his horse, packs up a bar of soap, calls for his dog, and sets out on the long journey to the river. Once there, he instructs the dog to guard his clothes while he takes his bath. After washing and scrubbing and lathering and buffing, the cowboy is clean as corn and ready to get started home. But an unforeseeable obstacle complicates matters when he fixes on retrieving his duds...
The author heard this story of the Dirty Cowboy from her grandfather, who heard it from his father-in-law (who claimed it was true).
Illustrated by Adam Rex.
