Beschreibung

Old Man Ennis, who ranched on the upper Madison in Montana, grudgingly admired the slate-colored Zebu cow, whose wild cunning was passed on to her calf. The calf grows into a monster bull, not personified but endowed with the suggestion of a definite point of view. A phantom glimpsed against the horizon - that is the image he leaves.

Autorentext

"The Pinto Horse" and "The Phantom Bull," both illustrated by the western painter Edward Borein (1873-1945), were the only books written by Charles Elliott Perkins (1881-1943). Introducer Jay Fultz, formerly Bison Books editor at the University of Nebraska Press, is the author of "In Search of Donna Reed."



Klappentext

In 1927 Owen Wister called "The Pinto Horse" "the best western story about a horse that I have ever read." The pinto roamed the Montana range in the late 1880s, surviving wolves and blizzards and earning the respect of the herd but never blending in, always standing out in vulnerable perfection. After years of trusting to human kindness, he falls into the hands of fools. "The Phantom Bull", first published in 1932, is also marked by authenticity and controlled beauty of style. Old Man Ennis, who ranched on the upper Madison in Montana, grudgingly admired the slate-colored Zebu cow, whose wild cunning was passed on to her calf. The calf grows into a monster bull, not personified but endowed with the suggestion of a definite point of view. A phantom glimpsed against the horizon--that is the image he leaves.
