"This book tells with unflagging interest the story of the longhorns, the Chisholm Trail, the rise of cattle ranching on the Plains, rustlers, highwaymen, quick-draw sheriffs, and bitter warfare between cowmen and homesteaders. Its chronicle of the Olive family, the largest cattlegrowers in the Platte Valley, is full of color and adventure," according to historian Allan Nevins. Black-and-white illustrations, bibliography, index. Cream and brown hard cover, fine; map endpapers; dust jacket, fine, not price-clipped (original jacket has all inward flaps cut at a slight diagonal). Bookseller Inventory # 20629RC
