Cowboys & Longhorns: A Portrait of the Long Drive by Jerry Stanley

Renowned author Jerry Stanley delves into the incredible -- and true -- story of how longhorns, the notoriously ornery cattle known for horns that could stretch up to eight feet in width, were run from Texas to Kansas in order to meet the growing appetite for beef in the United States. Traveling along the legendary Chisholm Trail, herds of up to 3,000 were driven through barren landscapes and across rushing rivers by just a few persevering cowboys. Filled with gritty details, excerpts from firsthand accounts, photos, maps, and more, this is a fascinating look into a compelling and pivotal part of the United States history from National Book Award finalist Jerry Stanley.
