The Log of A Cowboy
A Narrative of the Old Trail DaysBook - 2006
A groundbreaking depiction of the cowboys, drovers, thieves and cattle-town malcontents of the American West. Straightforwardly told, rich in detail, and laced with appealing campfire humor, Andy Adam's realistic 'The Log of a Cowboy' is a classic portrayal of the western cattle country. Drawing on his own experiences as a cowboy working in cattle and horse drives, Adams presents a vivid portrait of the challenges of trail life on a cattle drive from Texas to Montana - the daily drudgery of cattle trailing as well as the dramatic stampedes and other treacherous disruptions.
