About this Item

289 pages, illustrations, photos, new in original shrinkwrap. Western Frontiersmen Series XXXIV. Information on the major ranching figures, Clay, Frewen, Powder River Ranch, Johnson County War, etc. "When Horace Plunkett left Britain for the American West in 1879, seeking relief for lung problems, he launched a ranching career in Wyoming that influenced the cattle industry and altered the course of his own life. This is the first book to portray Plunkett as a major figure in the western-range cattle industry, unearthing new evidence that reveals how he mastered the microeconomics of ranching. Plunkett's influence carried well beyond the range. In Washington, D.C., he promoted his ideas on agricultural education and the rural cooperative movement, earning him the ear of President Theodore Roosevelt. And when the Great War broke out, Plunkett functioned as a kind of private diplomat, carrying messages back and forth between the administration of President Woodrow Wilson and the British government.".
