New York: Alfred A. Knopf, 1967. 304pp. Illustrations by Lorence Bjorklund. Black paper over boards with an oatmeal colored cloth spine, title in brown ink on the spine. First edition, first printing. Review copy with the review slip laid-in. Fine copy. The unclipped dust jacket shows minor edgewear with slight toning of the spine, overall, very good. A. C. Greene, 50+ Best Books on Texas p. 41: “Horse Tradin’, the first collection of his tales (he wrote ten more), remains delightful reading….His narration is fresh and flowing, the work of a born storyteller. You never get tired of reading him.” Twenty stories, allegedly true and definitely funny, about Green experiences as breeder and trader of horses all over the West. Interestingly, the “D.V.M” initials on the front panel of dust jacket never appeared on another Green book because they were false; but, that doesn’t change the fact that he was a great teller of tales. A fun read, as usual.
