More True Tales of Old-Time Kansas
“Rollicking, adventurous, touching” is how American West described David Dary’s first collection of stories, True Tales of Old-Time Kansas. This sequel, contains forty one episodes, sagas, and legends from Kansas’ vigorous, free-spirited past, show Dary again at his entertaining best. For Dary’s many fans, this new collection provides more of what Ray A. Billington, renowned historian of the Old West, described as “authentic history, delightfully told.” And, as Richard Bartlett, author of Great Surveys of the American West, said of the first True Tales volume, “Where else but in the frontier, West were such stories really lived?”
“Swift-moving tales . . . always readable, often captivating. Dary is ever the master of narrative. This is a contribution to the literary heritage of the state. Thomas Isern, co-author of Plainsfolk.
