9781330849705: Saddles and Lariats, the Largely True Story of the Bar-Circle, Outfit, and of Their Attempt to Take a Big Drove of Longhorns From Texas, to ... When, the Gold Fever Raged (Classic Reprint)

Excerpt from Saddles and Lariats, the Largely True Story of the Bar-Circle, Outfit, and of Their Attempt to Take a Big Drove of Longhorns From Texas, to California, in the Days When, the Gold Fever Raged

For three hundred years the Anglo-American, strong son of the Anglo-Saxon, has been engaged in conquering his three thousand miles of wilderness. But at last his giant's task is ended. No more remains any region between the two oceans that deserves the name of wilderness. And with that conquest has ended the pioneer life - such a life as the world never saw before. And certainly the world shall not look upon its like again. Already the explorer, the Indian trader, the hunter and trapper, the cowboy, the settler with an axe in one hand and a rifle in the other, have followed the war-painted savage into the dimming, shadowy past.

While the life that is is better, it can never be so picturesque as was the rude, homely life of the frontiersman. And the farther we travel from that simple life, both in time and ways of living, the more we shall love to read of it and talk of it, and the more, it may be, we shall regret that it has gone from us forever.

Of all the wild life in America, none was so striking as that to be seen along the great wilderness trails - the emigrant trails and the cattle trails. And in picturesqueness nothing could surpass those vast droves of horned steers, with their overhanging dust-clouds, their shouting, galloping cowboy drivers, and their attending wagon-trains, which, now nearly two generations ago, tramped the thousands of miles from Texas, the land of cattle, to California, the land of gold.
