Summary, etc.: Canadian cowboy Russell offers a collection of new and previously published tales evoking the irresistible allure of the campfire. Some are tales of Russell's own youth; others are part of western lore and the history of the west; yet others concern those whose trails crossed his, or whose legends he heard over campfires long ago. Some of the stories dwell in the past, and others deal in the present. Some are about horses, grizzlies, owls, and other wildlife; some commemorate old mountain men or cunning city slickers. --Adapted from
