If all other books on trail-driving were destroyed, a reader could still get a just and authentic conception of trail men, trail work, range cattle, cow horses, and cow country in general from THE LOG OF A COWBOY.(J. Frank Dobie in Guide to Life and Literature of the Old Southwest)

Great book about real life on the cattle trail in the 1880's. Published in 1903, Andy Adams avoided the "dime store novel" approach of popular western books of the day to write about day to day life on the trail.

The Log of a Cowboy is a well written adventure of the cow hand's life on an 1800's cattle drive from Texas to Montana. It is a very authentic story depicting everyday life and sometimes the sadness they experienced on the trail.
