Biography of a man who has made a name for himself as cowboy, ranger, scout, big game hunter, etc. Into his life is packed the whole span of the cowboy history, open range, riding herd on longhorns from Texas to the markets, serving as ""cow waddie"" in rounding up wild cattle, ranching. He had his experiences, friendly and otherwise, with Indians, and gives a very fair picture of the problem, with full tribute paid to the contribution they have made and could have made, and recognition of the mistakes in handling them. He served with the army against Indians and Mexicans. And he knows his southeast, as evidenced by his collaborator, Howard R. Driggs.
