Summary
  • Jim Bullis "never wore out no pitchfork pitchin' hay," but he was an oldtime cowboy whose word was as good as his bond, amd particularly today his story needs to be told. Perhaps we don't realize, or have forgotten, that there was one thing of less value to a cowboy than time - money! The story of how Jim "cleared his pocketbook" instrad of getting rid of an aching tooth fully illustrates this amazing philosophy. Or how he bought the axe he was hired to cut wood with and threw it into the river! And, even more hilariously, how he circumvented an entire railroad and made money on it
  • In thsi series of stories about Buckskin Jim, Martha McKelvie highlights a very different cowboy from the typical TV type, and one which man of us would like to meet again - a man who spoke no evil, heard no evil, saw no evil, and finally turned his horse toward the Great Divide, to meet the God with whom "he never had no trouble."
