Ace Reid: Cowpoke, by John R. Erickson
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."
