A Texas Cowboy : or, Fifteen Years on the Hurricane Deck of a Spanish Pony (Penguin Classics)
A Texas Cowboy or Fifteen Years on the Hurricane Deck of a Spanish Pony - Penguin Classics Author:Charles A. Siringo, Richard Etulain After a nomadic childhood, Charles Siringo signed on as a teenage cowboy for the noted Texas cattle king, Shanghai Pierce, and began a life that embraced all the hard work, excitement, and adventure readers today associate with the cowboy era.

Will Rogers declared, "That was the Cowboy's Bible when I was growing up."« less
