For this was Heath's last chance to prove to each of them - and to himself - that one moment of cowardice need not condemn a man forever" -- back cover

During the early years of the twentieth century, when he was still in teens, the author of this book worked as a cowboy on the Triangle Bar Triangle Ranch at Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, on the edge of the Navajo Reservation. This was the famous Wetherill ranch, located barely a stone's throw from the spectacular Anasazi ruins of Pueblo Bonito. Schmedding's absorbing account of his years as a cowboy and his later experiences at nearby Sanders and Keams Canyon trading posts in Arizona offer an authentic view of the day-to-day life of real cowboys and real Indians, mingled with fascinating glimpses of the pioneering archaeological activities of the Wetherills and the Hyde exploring expedition -- Back cover
Monte Walsh by Jack Schaefer( Recording )

9 editions published between 1986 and 2015 in English and held by 172 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

A classic about the American West and the life and times of one tough cowboy, Monte Walsh. Partial to pretty women, gambling, and practical jokes, Monte doesn't have to look far to find trouble. Luckily for him, Monte's best friend, Chet, is always there to post bail or quickly get Monte out of town. As Monte grows older though, and the West inevitably changes, he resists changing with it, and shows his dedication and loyalty to the cowboy way of life. The popular 1970 film starring Lee Havin and Jack Palance is loosely based on this moving story by Jack Schaefer. Dreamscape is proud to present Monte Walsh, a classic American Western not to be missed
