Out In The West
Author: Don Fraser


He was riding his horse at a full gallop trying to get back to the ranch for supper. Yang the cook always fixed such good meals for the hands of the Four Xs ranch, and he didnt want to miss the beefsteak that Yang was fixing the hands that night, it was his favorite.

Then he and his horse came face to face with a large grizzly bear. The cowboys horse stopped and started bucking. The cowboy stayed with his horse for a while before he was bucked off. There he was standing alone out away from the ranch by an hour, looking that grizzly face to face.

He took the long knife that he wore on his side and prepared to do battle with the bear. His horse after it had bucked the cowboy off. It ran away carrying his rifle with him.

The bear got on its hind legs as it was getting ready to attack. Then out of some brush, came a romping and playing bear cub. The mother grizzly licked her cub and led it away. The cowboy had to walk back to the ranch. He was to late to eat the beefsteak, but he was glad to be alive. His horse came back to the ranch where he groomed him and gave him an extra ration of grain.
