Rear\' to Go A wild horse and a wilder rider. A round-up and a horse-race that leaves you limp. Quck sand and a struggle that leaves you limp. Greek meets U.S.A. with fists - shut your eyes if you can\'t stand the sight of blood. The West, big hearted, restless and fun-loving. All this and more in - The Ramblin\' Kid by Earl Wayland Bowman A clean, thrilling Western novel that has achieved the distinction of having been the third most popular book in the country in 1922. A story for all who enjoy an outdoor, Wild-West romance of hard-riding, quick-firing, cow-punching plainsmen. Its pages are chock-full of humor; its characters are realities. "Ex-editor, ex-printer, ex-cattle-puncher, ex-horse-breaker, ex-restaurant-keeper, ex-broker in real estate, ex-poet, ex-State Senator from Idaho and a few other things by way of variety - that\'s Earl Wayland Bowman as he was. Now all of these experiences have crystallized into a real career and he is putting his knowledge of life - the life of the far West, of plains and cities and cattle-punchers - into fiction. \'The Ramblin\' Kid\' is his first book....Asked what is his motto in life, he answered, seriously: \'Do your darndest and play out your hand to the end!\'" -Sunset A story brimming over with humor and life, and the spirit of Western plains and cowboys and bronco-busters - and happy living and fun and wholesome people - such a story is \'The Ramblin\' Kid, by Earl Wayland Bowman. Mr. Bowman is a perfectly fresh, new writer, - and he has written a perfectly fresh, new story. For people who love stories of the West - for people who want a novel with fresh plot and vivid atmosphere and charm of style - \'The Ramblin\' Kid\' is the book. Men will particularly enjoy it and women, too, will respond to its quaint but true philosophy, - and both men and women will take away from the reading of the book the spirit of sweeping plains - and the big hearted West.
