Publisher Description

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. But as Monte grows older though and the American West inevitably changes, he resists changing with it, showing 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.

    " Great book, one of my favorites. If I could give it 4.5 stars I would, only because it's not the kind of book that I would read over and over again - it's a pretty slow read. "

    " Simply a classic. I really enjoyed this book. The descriptions of western landscapes and weather were accurate and vivid allowing me to envision the scenes. The characters were human and wonderfully depicted. I recommend this book to anyone with an interest in the Old West. "

    " Story of a man, his horses - with a decided preference for buckskins - and the coming of the wire to the West. I've read this book at least 10 times, and it still breaks my heart. "
