"This is more than a history of the cattle drives. This is a peek into a period of time that catches the reader's attention with the opening sentence and drives the reader to read on. Paul Wellman has written a classic in narrative form, and brings to life the men and women and the cattle of the West from Texas to Montana, and from Missouri to California."-Denver Roundup
