"Thomas Firth's brilliant idea make for very colorful taless...When it comes to the art of exaggeration, Thomas J. Firth could put any self-respecting mule trader to shame" Brenda Brinkley - Western Mule Magazine

OutWest Tales

 I Should've Been A Cowboy covers such thoughtful subjects ranging from getting older, to that quick, little shortcut on a path less-taken.  From the old muleskinner, Lecil Hadley's evening in the hoosekow and his attempt at ordering in pizza, to a leisurely bicycle ride down a quint, mountain trail.  Tom also covers the disease all mule owners fear; SMDS, and he laments wistfully about his calling in life and what should have been.  Just when you thought it couldn't get any worse, Thomas Firth proves time and time again that it not only can, it usually does.


Excerpt

All I ever really wanted to do was to ride the range, fighting injustice wherever it reared its ugly head. Righting wrongs and putting outlaws on edge, all I ever wanted was the chance to live the cowboy life; to be a straight-shooter and live the clean, a six-gun strapped to my hip. I'd ride the lonesome plains, standing up for the honor of women and fighting for the American way. I just wanted to be a cowboy, that's all I ever wanted to be. And I would have been, too, except for one, small thing; Granny wouldn't let me have a horse!
