This book has everything you'd expect in a classic western cowboy novel: cattle ranching, rustlers, gunfights, miserable winters, and making the transition from tenderfooting to cowboy. Edgar Beecher Bronson wrote it, and the rest of his popular works, between 1910 and 1917. Great action and cowboy lingo.

Bronson also wrote "The Red-Blooded Heros of the Frontier" (1910); "In Closed Territory" (1910), about Africa; "The Vanguard" (1914), and published posthumously, "The Love of Loot and Women (1917).

* This book is an exact, high-definition copy of the print version of the book. Unlike other e-copies of the book, it is not a transcription, which may be full of typographic errors, making it a chore to read.

* "Exact" means that if the print version has any inscriptions or previous owner's name in the front of the book, so, too, will this e-book; blank pages that often separate chapters may be left in; and, any pages that may have a folded corner, for example, may be included, as well.

*In other words, no changes have been made to either the illustrations or the text, making the book as original as possible.

About the Author

Edgar Beecher Bronson (1856–1917) was a Nebraska rancher, a West Texas cattleman, an African big-game hunter, a serious photographer and starting late in life, an author of fiction and personal memoirs. Bronson was a nephew of famed abolitionist Henry Ward Beecher. Formerly a reporter for the New York Tribune, Bronson headed west in 1877 to learn the cattle business under the directive of Clarence King — first director of the United States Geological Survey and owner of large mining and cattle operations in the American West. Bronson worked for one season in Wyoming before starting his own ranch with 716 cows with calves. Bronson chose Sioux County, Nebraska for the site of his first ranch.
