“To know the total of the herd, count the hooves and divide by four.” –Excerpt from A Rancher’s Guide to Life

Whether its humor, advice, a quick read, a gift or words to ponder that you’re looking for, the books in the Wit & Wisdom Series are sure to fit the bill.

The four small volumes (just 5 by 5 inches each)—A Cowboy’s Guide to Life, The Cowgirl’s Guide to Life, A Rancher’s Guide to Life and Cowfolk’s Guide to Getting Older—surely will entertain readers of all ages.

A disclaimer at the beginning of each book states: “The quotations in this book come from a mixture of lore and experience.” Some will be familiar (“If you find yourself in a hole, the first thing to do is stop diggin’.”), while others might be a surprise. Most are humorous, but a few are more philosophical (“The bridges that you cross before you come to them are usually over rivers that aren’t there.”).

Whether you’re a cowboy or cowgirl, a rancher, or just a person who appreciates the Western lifestyle and the humor that goes along with it, you’ll get a kick out of these little books and likely want to give a few to friends and family.
