Cowboy Kate & Other Stories. Photographs by Sam Haskins. Introduction by Norman Hall. Synopsis by Desmond Skirrow. Crown, New York, 1965. Unpaged. Folio. Clothbound in illustrated dust jacket. Numerous full-page black-and-white reproductions.

Writing in 1964 Norman Hall said of this book: The main story is a sort of allegory with a theme as old as the folklore of humanity. Nostalgically, it guys the props, the conventions and sentimentality of vintage "Westerns" but the point it makes is the triumph of beauty - young and wholesome, innocent beauty. Technically, the telling has more in common with a slick ballet sequence from a well directed film than with the conventional picture story. It flows and it tingles. It has continuity and superb presentation. It is made up of an agreeable mixture of fun and hyperbole, extravagance and restraint. Nothing is just plain statement, so that the reader has the pleasure of exercising his own powers of interpretation. Spiritually, it is a song of praise for the loveliness of woman and it has a lyrical fragrance which harks back to Spencer or Ben Jonson. It has a pervading sense of fun." A marvelous period piece!
