Short Story Collection

“… Johnny D. Boggs is the natural heir to the famous old purveyors of Westerns. ‘The Cobbler of Spanish Fort and Other Frontier Stories’ shows why. It is a collection of tales of the West, the Southern Frontier, and even the Civil War, written with wit and imagination. … Each one illustrates why Boggs is considered a top hand.”
