This true story of the Texas brush range and the first cowboys, as thrillingas any tale of fiction, has become a classic in Western literature. It isthe story of the land where cattle by tens of thousands were killed on theprairie and where the "Skinning War" was fought. It is the storyof the Chisholm Trail up to Abilene and the Platte and of establishing aranch on the free grass of the Texas Panhandle, of roping elk in Colorado, of trailing Billy the Kid in New Mexico, of the grim lands of the Pecos.And it is the story of John Young, old-time vaquero who was trail driver, hog chaser, sheriff, ranger, hunter of Mexican bandits, horse thief killer, prairie fire fighter, ranch manager, and other things--a man who was alsosomething of a dreamer, a man of imagination.
