Overview

- More than 90 illustrations by the famous artist, Frederic Remington.
- 187 printed pages.

Theodore Roosevelt tells his personal stories of hunting, ranching and even some of the "bad men" of the west.

From the Book:
"IN our own immediate locality we have had more difficulty with white desperadoes than with the redskins. At times there has been a good deal of cattle-killing and horse-stealing, and occasionally a murder or two. But as regards the last, a man has very little more to fear in the West than in the East, in spite of all the lawless acts one reads about. Undoubtedly a long-standing quarrel sometimes ends in a shooting-match; and of course savage affrays occasionally take place in the bar-rooms; in which, inasmuch as the men are generally drunk, and, as the revolver is at best a rather inaccurate weapon, outsiders are nearly as apt to get hurt as are the participants. Against horse-thieves, cattle-thieves, claim-jumpers, and the like, however, every ranchman has to be on his guard; and armed collisions with these gentry are sometimes inevitable. The fact of such scoundrels being able to ply their trade with impunity for any length of time can only be understood if the absolute wildness of our land is taken into account."
