Synopsis: Few are aware that Arkansas was once a land of cattle drovers, but with the publication of Old Brands and Lost Trails: Arkansas and the Great Cattle Drives, this omission from the documented history of the state is now corrected.
After more than five years of research--including a nearly six-month-long horseback ride along an old Arkansas-to-California cattle-drive trail--Ivan Denton presents the remarkable story of the early cattle trade from the Natural State in a prose style reminiscent of campfire yarns. In the first portion of the book Denton weaves together the stories of early explorers in Arkansas, of remarkable cattle drives and drovers, and of the modern cattle industry, and he traces some of the most famous brands in ranching lore back to these early cattlemen. In the second part of the book, Denton tells the unforgettable story of twenty-three weeks with Lad, his Arabian horse, as they retraced the Cherokee Trail, step by step.
Whether you read Old Brands and Lost Trails to broaden your understanding of Arkansas's heritage or to relive the trials and simple pleasures of a bygone era, Ivan Denton's stories promise hours of enjoyment.
