Glendale, CA: Arthur H. Clark Co., 1953. Octavo. Item #016208
343P. Index. Map. Typical of the thorough work of the author, besides the map of the Southwestern Frontier in the 1880's, there is a key to the brand marks relevant to the book, illustrations of the range, line camps, buffalo hunters and others. A well-researched view of the Southeast plains as the cattle drives ended, the lawlessness along the frontier, the call of cattle to the men who came to Texas with a dream, and the rewarding but hard life of the working cowboy. The author has preserved as much as possible the dialect and unique way the people spoke on the range. First hand accounts of Oliver Nelson with the continuing Indian attacks, the Texas Rangers and the wild outlaws from Al Jennings, the Daltons, the James gang and many others. Bound in red cloth, spine lettering gilt. A near fine copy. Adams 150 #46; 6-Guns #577; Herd 670.
