Jefferson Spivey's first appearance in the public's eye was at the age of four. He was on the cover of a Catholic Orphanage charity magazine looking lost and forlorn in ragged clothes. By the time he was eleven, he had run away from two orphanages. As a teen, during the summer months he hitch-hiked the highways of the western states working at odd jobs, the wheat harvest, truck driving and rough-necking in the oil fields. One summer he worked as a cowboy. He joined the Marine Corps under age and was honorably discharged. Later he was drafted into the Army for a tour of duty in Europe. Known mostly for his long journeys on horseback, Spivey s ride from the Pacific to the Atlantic took seven months and covered 4,000 miles through all the seasons. He is the first man to have accomplished such a feat, one man, one horse, on one continuous trek. In 1984, he saddled up and rode from Canada to Mexico down the Rocky Mountain chain. It was another first, having ridden both, from ocean to ocean and from Canada to Mexico. There were other rides; one took him to SouthWest Africa where he rode across the oldest desert in the world. During his ocean to ocean ride in 1968 he invented the Sabertooth Knife, (spiveysabertoothknife.com). The design is so unique that it has become, in and of itself, a trademark. The Sabertooth, which is a hatchet, saw and knife has been sold all over the world. Spivey has written for National Geographic, Defenders of Wildlife, Gun World, Horse and Rider, Knives Illustrated and other Outdoors publications. He was a consultant writer on his own story The Long Ride, at Universal Studios. Over the years, while the Author rode into history on horseback and raised two families, this work, The Law and The Eagle finally emerged. Other literary works have been produced. Wind Drinker is an epic of nonfiction, Spivey s own adventures and memoir. A vanishing breed, his long journeys on horseback have been written about worldwide.
