5On the Plains of Montana
Von T. Mc Cann
From 1971 to 1973 I worked on the LF Ranch,near Augusta, Montana.I learned how to ride and rope and mend fence and pitch hay. I've wrestled calves around the branding fire. I took part in fall round up where we shipped 2,000 head of cattle. Since leaving Montana I have traveled over the world and done many exciting things but I can tell you nothing beats the feeling you get when you go out to the corral early in the morning and saddle your cowpony and ride out on the Montana plains for a day of work on the LF Ranch. When I read Monte Walsh for the first time I felt like I was in a time warp. I closed my eyes and I was back in Montana again. I can hear the jingle of the tack,the saddle leather squeeking, horses snorting, cows bellowing for their calves, the forman shouting orders to the cowhands.In my opinion this book is the epitome of western cowboy literature. This book is the most accurate charactization and description of what it was like to be a cowboy at the turn of the century ever written. Highly recommended !!!

5Pure and simple, this is simply the BEST of it's kind.
Von Harv
Like so many other reviewers, my copy of this marvelous book is tattered, dog-earred and just plain worn-out! When real cowboys and ranch-hands give this book the "thumbs-up," then you know that you've got something REALLY special going on. Jack Schaefer has woven his vignettes of Monte Walsh's life into a superb compilation of the "real" cowboy life, full of bumps and bruises, growing pains, life lessons, cantankerous behavior and bonds that last longer than a mere lifetime. Monte's and Chet's story is a true love story, but not the kind that today's society so often thinks of---this is the love that two men, buddies for life, have for one another, and the absolute devotion that they have for the other is remarkably told here. Filled with truly memorable characters and events, this is a must-read for anyone seeking to learn what it truly means to be called a cowboy. Honest, gritty, hilarious, and heartbreaking, Monte Walsh is simply the best of the best. Once you've read it, you'll find yourself reading it again and again through the years. Just try it and you'll see for yourself!

5Cowboy to the bone
I have lived the life of a cowboy. I know what goes on with horses and cattle. This book is a good depiction of a real cowboys lifestyle. Some people think that the American cowboy has gone the way of the Indian; but I assure you there are still people out there like Monte Walsh, riding bad horses and people like Chet Rollins, roping ornery critters. This is an excellent book for anybody who has ever dreamed of being a cowboy and even for the folks in the city who feel like they might have a little cowboy in them somewhere. Read it.
