Front Cover
Kensington Publishing Corp., Oct 1, 2009 - Humor - 272 pages
“Zane Greyberg might be just as zany as Mel Brooks” (Jewish Book Council).
Did the Jews really tame the American frontier? You bet your tuchas. Brave, rugged Jews with big dreams and even bigger shmeckels. Shtarkers like Davy Kronsky. The Ringo Kiddish. The mysterious Man with No Keepah (or, “yarmulke”). Jewish Indian tribes like the Mishagossi and Grossinga who would never scalp on the Sabbath.
These are their stories, told for the first time, so pay attention!
“She Wore a Yellow Shmatta,” “The Good, the Bad, and the Meshuganeh,” “The Magnificent $7 (Marked Down to $5.98),” “Two Moyels for Sister Sara,” “A Fistful of Dreidels,” “Chai Noon,” “The Wild Brunch,” and a lot more!

About the author (2009)

Zane Greyberg, born Leo Kloppman in Brooklyn, New York, has held a variety of jobs, from chicken flicker to pickle-maker, before he turned to writing. His first book, Shangri-Latkes and Other Lost Horizons was published in 1999 and completely befuddled critics. Roderick Pish-Tipple of the Hackensack Jewish Weekly said, “You call this poetry? It doesn’t even rhyme. What’s with this Greyberg guy—he drinks maybe?”
Greyberg lives, he says, “wherever the wind blows and the cream cheese is fresh.”
