Editorial Reviews

Omaha Literature Examiner
"[The Cattlemen] is full of colorful anecdotes, many from the 19th Century, and holds fascination for anyone interested in cattle drives, cattle ranching, or the Wild West."—Kirk Zebolsky, Omaha Literature Examiner
Chicago Sunday Tribune - Victor P. Hass
“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
