He reached up a gloved hand and scraped away as much as he could, wrapped the long-skirted, "sour-dough" coat around his numbed legs, then settled into the saddle with a shiver of distaste at the plight he was in, and wished himself back at the Horseshoe Bar.

Sort order. Start your review of Rowdy of the Cross L. I had to laugh when Rowdy, completely lost in new territory, leaves Dixie to decide which way to go, trusting the horse's instinct to find them all some shelter. He sits quietly, thinking of not much at all, when suddenly Dixie stops with his nose against a fence and waits for instructions. It is not the being lost in a blizzard that made me laugh, but what Rowdy tells the horse next remember that this was written in ; bold type added by myself : They brought up against a wire fence, and Vaughan, rousing from his apathy, tried to peer through the white, shifting wall of the storm.
It's your own fault. She had been out visiting a student's family and got caught by the surprise storm. Cowboy Falls In Love At First Sight seems to be a recurring theme for Bower and it happens here too, except that the school teacher's brother is a no-good horse thieving kind of guy who has done some pretty low-down things to our friend Rowdy in the recent past: even Chub turns out to be part of the brother's no-goodness.

At this point I was thinking how familiar the story felt and I realized there had been a hint of the same kind of dilemma in the first book I read by Bower, a collection of stories called The Lonesome Trail and Other Stories. I imagine she wanted to explore the idea a little more and this book was the result.
Later we meet the cowboy Pink, who had also appeared in a story in that first book. It was fun to see a familiar face, and get to know him a little better. He also figured very strongly in the unexpected and somewhat shocking twist in the second to last chapter, and I have to say I think he did the right thing, and I hope he gets over the horror of the whole episode quickly.
As for Rowdy, the final short chapter is perfect. I got all teary Rowdy was just so wonderful. I'm going to go read that part again. Mar 10, Anna rated it really liked it.

Such a simple story but so wonderfully written. A nice little Western novella, its shortness maybe a bit of a weak point. I'd like to have had a little more time to get to know the characters better. Cowboy Rowdy Vaughn is smitten with pretty schoolteacher Jessie Conroy, but his efforts at courtship are hampered by his feud with her good-for-nothing brother—whom Jessie firmly believes to be everything good and noble.
The subplot, concerning Rowdy's employer's attempts to find pasture for his cattle during a drought, provides one of 3. The subplot, concerning Rowdy's employer's attempts to find pasture for his cattle during a drought, provides one of the highlights of the book: several interesting chapters describing a tedious cattle drive with a lack of water. I believe this is the story that introduced the supporting character of Pink, the cowpuncher whose baby face belies his fighting disposition, who later joined up with the Flying U crew in The Lonesome Trail and Other Stories and became a regular character in that series.
