Summary

Rabbi Harvey is Back with Ten Hilarious New                 Adventures              
In this follow-up to the popular The Adventures of Rabbi Harvey: A Graphic Novel of Jewish Wisdom and Wit in the Wild West, the Rabbi returns to the streets of Elk Spring, Colorado. Part Wild West sheriff, part old world rabbi, Harvey                 protects his town and delivers justice, wielding only the                 weapons of wisdom, wit, and a bit of trickery. These adventures                 combine Jewish and American folklore by creatively retelling                 comic Jewish folktales and setting them loose on the western                 frontier of the 1870s.              
As his fame grows throughout the Rocky                 Mountains, Rabbi Harvey meets new characters—including                 the luckless gold miner Abigail—and faces a slew of new                 challenges. He encounters the return of “Big Milt”                 and Wolfie Wasserman (the most feared father-and-son outlaw                 team east of Nevada), and investigates another bold crime by                 the sweet-faced Bad Bubbe. And, as ever, the Rabbi is the quickest draw in the West—when it comes to pulling out bits of Talmudic                 insight to fit any occasion, that is. Like any great collection                 of Jewish folktales, these stories contain layers of humor and                 timeless wisdom that will entertain, teach and, especially,                 make you laugh.
