Summary
Raconteur Frankie McWhorter embodies two archetypes: the working cowboy and the Texas fiddler. A cowboy since he stalked out of high school in 1948 and an alumnus of Bob Will's Texas Playboys, he manages a seventeen-section ranch in the Panhandle and leads a western-swing band. His stories about cowboying and touring with Wills are celebrated by a wide circle of friends and admirers. John R. Erickson, raconteur, banjo picker, and author of books on the modern working cowboy, took to making rounds with Frankie on the ranch and playing music with him at night. Erickson carried a small tape recorder in the top of his boot to collect the gems of Frankie's tireless storytelling. The product of that partnership, this West Texas memoir, already has a place on your shelf with the works of Will James, Ben K. Green, Spike Van Cleve, Fay Ward, and J. Frank Dobie
