This antique book contains the delightful story of 'Scorpion', a characterful horse belonging to a cowboy in the American West. An excellent feel-good novel and an accurate description of life as a real cowboy, this is a text that will greatly appeal to lovers of the Old West and makes for a must-have addition to collections of Will James's wonderful work. Will James (1892 - 1942) was an artist and author of American Western literature. He is most famous for writing 'Smoky the Cowhorse', a book for which he won the 1927 Newbery Medal. This antique book was originally published in 1916, and we are proud to republish it now complete with a new biography of the author.
