This classic survey of the big ranches of the Southwest reaches deep into the stories of key players in American ranching history. Colorful tales of the finest cutting horse, the meanest cow thief. the most princely cowman of them all - even the hair raising details of gun play with a bad man whose name cannot be revealed are told in bare-knuckle fashion that leaves no cushion to soften the truth. the big ranch Country reaches far up into the Texas Panhandle, deep into the Big Bend of Trans-Pecos Texas and down south to the great ranch empires of the Texas coast.
