Reading the West 9-6-10

The Greeley Fence Post -- “The Littlest Wrangler” by J. R. Sanders with illustrations by Vin Libassi is based on the classic cowboy song, “Little Joe the Wrangler.” In this version, Joe Monday is an orphan living in New York who comes to the West on an orphan train. Arriving in Kansas City, he is “adopted” by a grimy, gruff man, Mr. Grubb, and taken on to Texas where Joe labors hard, lives in a chicken coop, and has barely enough food to sustain him.


Tim Tingle and Doc Moore bring you “More Spooky Texas Tales” in their newest collection from Texas Tech Univeristy Press.
