Overview

Notes from the "Book Review Digest," Volume 1:

*The author, who saw the beginning of the custom of wintering Texan cattle in the Northwest, the measure which brought the extermination of the bison and the confinement of the lndians to their reservations, and who had some experience with railway companies and their methods of caring for cattle, and their prices with contractors, and with the Congressional lobbyist has woven all these things into his story.

* The success of these book are the more notable from the entire absence of anything resembling a love story.

* Andy Adams tells of the dangers of the great drive, from stampedes, from alkali water, from drought, from flood and from men. in a straightforward and convincing way.

* They are out-door books, with no pretense or philosophy — a plain story that takes you into the herd and its daily happenings. The books are admirable for their kind.

* Genuine American stores. There is no fiction in, but a true, well-defined and entertainingly written narrative.

* They are a fine picture of life on the plains, the relations of the men towards each other, episodes of treachery and sharp practices, and the fights against these evils."

* They are a striking foot-note to the study of conditions in the far West."
