THE LONOHORNS by J. Frank Doble


Email this review


Addenda to Western this full length ""biography of the breed of cattle as a pear of bison or grizzly bear"" in natural history, as a social factor with an extraordinary influence on men, as an economic agent, to form a story with both picturesqueness and romantic realism. Full of factual material about the physical aspects of the longhorns, strains, appearance, etc., -- about the character of the animals in stampede, drought, blizzard, hard habits, and crammed full of anecdotes by men who knew these cattle well. It is first class real Western material of men and animals, history, legend, lore of the plains, and the economic importance of the cattle industry and those it affected.
