Hot Biscuits Eighteen Stories by Women and Men of the Ranching West by M. Evans

Hot Biscuits Eighteen Stories by Women and Men of the Ranching West


Hot Biscuits Eighteen Stories by Women and Men of the Ranching West by M. Evans

The stories in this anthology range as wide as the Rockies, from a murder mystery to the tale of a unique horse trainer, to a family's desperate battle against a grass and forest fire to the story of a world famous violinist. But they share a common denominator: biscuits. Almost every story includes hot biscuits as a feature of daily life in the Working West. Biscuits, it turns out, are more important in western life than guns and maybe more than coffee. In the West, people who could make superior biscuits received more respect than the mayor and the police chief combined.


The stories not only make for good reading, they have the ring of authenticity the editors hoped for. In that respect, they're an emotional landmark in the history of the cowboy way. A reader wondering what remains of the real West will find the answer in these pages.
