Flint Hills Cowboys

Flint Hills Cowboys -- Tales of the Tallgrass Prairie, by Jim Hoy.

Here is another book I've enjoyed reading for my research on the Flint Hills. Jim has published several books about cowboy life and is an English professor and director of the Center for Great Plains Studies at Emporia State University. Jim grew up on a ranch in the Flint Hills and weaves an entertaining story about the life of a cowboy there. Based on history, folklore and his own memory, he describes ranch life in this small section of Kansas, which will leave you feeling like you've been there.
