The Nine Lives of a Cowboy


H. “Dude” Lavington

A cowboy must be blessed (or cursed) with nine lives like the proverbial cat, or he would never make it to the allotted three score and ten—or even to maturity.

The wild, wild west, Canadian style! Dude Lavington’s densely packed memoirs are full of humour, aphorisms, cowboy english and the stuff from which folk heroes are made. Stettler, Calgary, Quesnel, Barkerville, Stanley… find the places, hold the book, and both adventure and history will fall into your lap.
