Story of the "Cowboys' Coffee" that became famous for its advertising as well as its taste. Arbuckles included sweets, at times, to induce buyers, and included booklets that helped to provide reading and classical literature to the old west. The wooden boxes in which Arbuckles was packed are highly prized by chuckwagon cooks for the authentic air they give to a campsite. Well researched and readable, the reproductions of the advertisements are worth the price of teh book.
