Synopsis: This book comprises a fascinating and authentic look into the lives of some of the richest and most private ranches in Texas. This is a book that will greatly appeal to anyone with an interest in the historical singularity that is Texas, offering its readers a unique insight in to the ''real world'' of Texas ranch life and the ever-fading tradition of true ranching that made it what it is today. Many antique books such as this are increasingly rare and costly, and it is with this in mind that we are proud to be republishing this text here complete with a new introduction on the subject.
Product Description: This popular book about the cattlemen of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries is based on interviews with participants of the trail-drive era. Here is the story of the early cattle kings told in a style as pungent as sweaty leather, as informal as a chuck wagon supper, and as real as these old-time cowmen and beef barons themselves. Douglas's parade of cattle kings include Ike Pryor, Shanghai Pierce, Mifflin Kennedy, Richard King, the Mavericks, the Slaughters, the Waggoners, and others.
