Counter A southwestern Cinderella story with a twist.

"Way out West, where dreams come true, lived a poor cowboy named Joe Cinders."

Joe does all the chores while his mean stepbrothers, Buck, Bart, and Butch Bronco, spend their days counting buzzards in the sky. When pretty Miss Rosalinda invites them to her fall fiesta, the Bronco boys are determined that one of them will sashay her up to the preacher.

Poor Joe is left at home to watch the cattle. Suddenly a mysterious fella in baggy overalls appears, and with a few waves of his crooked stick Joe is ready to knock Miss Rosalinda off her feet--if the escaped prize bull doesn't do it first. This hilarious southwestern Cinderella story will make every reader wish for a fairy godfella.
