From the same corral that produced the widely loved Horse Tradin’, Ben “Doc” Green has rounded up fifteen new yarns filled with the ornery yet irresistible “con” that has branded Doc’s books as classics of Western Americana.

Some More Horse Tradin’ recounts the go-arounds of Doc and a whole slew of craggy old-timers and rangy characters, including a watermelon hauler “who has a bit of snuff that seeps out a little on his whiskers,” Professor Know-It-All, the “charitable” Mr. Undertaker, and the well-known public cowboy Will Rogers. See all of them matching their wiles and hear a lot of palaver, dealin’ and tradin’ for well-bred usin’-type mares, snorty-like range horses, and even used-to-be bad horses from the tumbleweeded plains of Texas to the mountain meadows of Yankee Vermont. Watch the Doc stretch a city ordinance with a frustrated lawman in “The Last Trail Drive Through Downtown Dallas” and admire the old-time knavery, skill, and salesmanship in such tales as “Gittin’ Even,” “Brethren Horse Traders,” “Mule Schoolin’,” and “Water Treatment and the Sore-Tailed Bronc.”

So here you go—with Doc Green and his horse-tradin’ West in finest fettle. As he puts it himself, “These apples come from the same barrel asHorse Tradin’ but they ain’t none of them spotty.”
