About the Author:

DR. OWEN ULPH was for thirty years a professor of European History at Reed College. Educated at Stanford University, he taught at a half-dozen universities. Between teaching stints, he worked as a cowhand in the Fiddleback Mountains of Nevada. He retired to his own ranch in the Ruby Mountains, Nevada, where he died in 2003.

Review:

"...it is absolutely one of the best, most insightful pieces of writing on the real cowboy that I have ever seen." -- Charles Backes, Denver Post

"...the best book on the cowhand's life since Andy Adams' The Log of a Cowboy [1903]." -- T.H. Watkins
