    1 thought on “Stirrup High”

    1. This was fantastic; it's a man's reminisces of his fourteenth summer on his dad's ranch in Montana, when he was only 'stirrup high'. I loved it more than I thought I would; he has a Fred Gipson flavour. Walt Coburn did more than the average kid dreamed of doing-he not only helped train robbers get away, but he survived being drug by a spooked horse, went on a cattle drive, and met the governor of Montana-to name a few. If you enjoy the west, and it's writer, you'll want to stop and read this nar [...]

    2. This autobiography is a great coming of age story in the west. Walt Coburn was the son of a true American cowboy a tough old man who pioneered the Montana Territories. This autobiography really gives an idea of roughing it on a ranch in 1903.

    3. Walter Coburn tells of his summer as a 14-year-old boy in northern Montana, working on his father's ranch. It is a huge spread of open range, with a large outfit of cowboys. Coburn remembers in vivid detail the incidents of that summer, devoting a large part of his book to the fall roundup, where despite his age and his size (stirrup high) he makes every effort to earn the respect of the other men as a hand. Unlike some books of this kind, Coburn is especially good at bringing to life the person [...]

    4. This book really shows how tough it was to live on a ranch in the 1800s. It had a lot of good information about cowboying the traditional way. It included a lot of the things that happened on his first roundup.
