MAX EVANS and CANDY MOULTON, editors. Hot Biscuits: Eighteen Stories by Women and Men of the Ranching West. University of New Mexico Press. 248 pages; hardcover, $17.05, amazon.com.

This collection of short stories are fiction but based upon the lives of the authors, men and women who have lived and worked on ranches. The stories range from a murder mystery to the tale of a unique horse trainer to a family’s desperate battle against a grass and forest fire. But they share a common denominator: biscuits. Biscuits, it turns out, are more important in western life than guns and maybe more than coffee.
