Overview

Cattle-Trailing Industry: Between Supply and Demand, 1866-1890 by Jimmy M. Skaggs


The harsh business realities of driving cattle are separated in this book from the mythology and folklore of the cattle-trailing era. Jimmy M. Skaggs focuses on the transportation agents who contracted the delivery of cattle for Texas ranchers and drove the animals northward for sale. He reveals them as shrewd "hip-pocket" businessmen.
