Editorial Reviews

Children's Literature - Marilyn Courtot
The overly romantic myth of the western migration is dispelled in this factually accurate and well-written account. Marrin tells of the cattle barons, their kingdoms, and the range wars that they fought in the western territories. Cattle was king and so were the men who owned and ran the great ranches. The large format is liberally illustrated with photographs, paintings and prints.
Carolyn Phelan
Beginning with the introduction of horses and cattle to North America, Marrin chronicles the changes brought to the Great Plains as ranchers encroached on the area, particularly during the 1800s. Debunking the romantic images, this discussion clarifies who cowboys were, what they did, and how they viewed their lives. While Marrin is graphic, perhaps too graphic, in describing scalping and other atrocities performed by Indians on pioneers, he balances the political scale by bluntly relating such brutal happenings as the massacres of Indians by cavalry troops, and the swift, senseless slaughter of the buffalo herds. Black-and-white reproductions of paintings, engravings, sketches, and photographs appear throughout the book, while full-color plates appear at intervals. A double-page-spread map of the Plains States will help readers get their bearings. Marrin's inclusion of concrete details and his engaging writing style make this an exceedingly readable account of a unique and turbulent period in American history.
