“No westerner since Will Rogers has made more of an impact on his times than Ace Reid. His work is known in every city and town west of the Mississippi.” So who is this man, Ace Reid? Where did he come from? How did he get started? What is it about his Cowpokes characters that has given his work such an enormous following?
Ace Reid: Cowpoke tells the fascinating story of Ace’s life. It tells of his humble beginnings and his desire and drive to be a cartoonist. The book was written with the full cooperation of Ace, his family, & his friends. John R. Erickson had access to Ace’s files & memorabilia, living with the Reid’s for two and a half months in 1983.
Ace Reid: Cowpoke not only deals with one of the great humorists of our time, but it is written by John R. Erickson, a man The Western Horseman called, “One of the best contemporary storytellers in the West.”
