The Cattlemen: From the Rio Grande across the Far Marias, Second Editionby Mari Sandoz
The Cattlemen is the story of the cattle industry in America and of the men whose ranches reached from the Rio Grande into Montana, from the early Spanish days to Mari Sandoz’s contemporary times. It is the second in Sandoz’s trilogy of books narrating the history of the American West in relation to animal species.
“Here, tough as whang leather, nourishing as pemmican, turbulent as Dodge City on a Saturday night in the late 1870s, is what time may well decide is the definitive history of the founding and flourishing of the cattle industry on this continent. . . . This splendid book says more (and says it better) about the most romantic figures of the old West than dozens of other books that have ranged over this familiar ground. Mari Sandoz has given herself room to move with tremendous drive and scholarship.”—Victor P. Hass, Chicago Sunday Tribune
