Description
Like The Buffalo Hunters and The Beaver Men, this 1958 book relates the history of the Great Plains to a particular animal that played a key role in its development. Mari Sandoz tells the story of the cattle industry in America from the early Spanish days to the author's own times, and of the men whose ranches reached from the Rio Grande into Montana. All of Sandoz's work—her tales of the Nebraska frontier, her Great Plains histories, and her landmark biography Crazy Horse—are suffused with the harsh beauty of the land and its people, and led the Nebraska Library Association to establish the Mari Sandoz Award after her death in 1966.

"This thundering book by the author of Old Jules is the story of the vast cattle industry of the American West; stupendous in length, concept, and achievement, it is the result of a lifetime of knowledge and research.... The whole story is here, long but never dull, written with humor and understatement."—Kirkus Reviews

"Here, tough as whang leather, nourishing as pemmican, turbulent as Dodge City on a Saturday night in the late 1870s, is what time may well decide is the definitive history of the founding and flourishing of the cattle industry on this continent.... This splendid book says more (and says it better) about the most romantic figures of the old West than dozens of other books that have ranged over this familiar ground. Mari Sandoz has given herself room to move with tremendous drive and scholarship."—Chicago Sunday Tribune
