My excuse for writing this book is money—and lots of it. I suppose the above would suffice, but as time is not very precious I will continue and tell how the idea of writing a book first got into my head: While ranching on the Indian Territory line, close to Caldwell, Kansas, in the winter of '82 and '83, we boys—there being nine of us—made an iron-clad rule that whoever was heard swearing or caught picking grey backs off and throwing them on the floor without first killing them, should pay a fine of ten cents for each and every offense.

About the Author:

Charles Angelo Siringo was born in Matagorda County, Texas in 1855. His love of horses drove him to the cattle business where in 1880, he joined a posse that was pursuing the notorious Billy the Kid. A year later Siringo helped a group of Texas cattlemen bust up a ring of horse thieves. In 1886, shortly after arriving in Chicago with his wife and young daughter, he joined the Pinkerton Detective Agency. There he helped convict several men responsible for the Haymarket Riots. This led to more work for Siringo, who would go on to solve many cases by using his skills as a horseman to go undercover and blend in. Retirement took him to Hollywood, where he was an advisor on the sets of many westerns. He died in October of 1928.
