This thundering book is the story of the vast cattle industry of the American west. Stupendous in length, concept, and achievement it in the result of a lifetime of knowledge and research. A Nebraskan, the author cut her teeth on the cattle warn of the last century. Its range is the West from Texas to northern Montana, from the Mississippi and Missouri to the Rockies and the herds, the rail roads, the ranches, the small settlers and big cattle barons and wars for control of the range. An invaluable addition to all libraries of American history.
