LOG OF A COWBOY: A NARRATIVE OF THE OLD TRAIL DAYS A classic fictional chronicle of life on the open trail, The Log Of A Cowboy has long been considered the best and most reliable account of real cowboy life ever written. In the years following the Civil War, sixteen-year-old Andy Adams left his home in the San Antonio Valley and took to the range. Here he charts his first journey as a bona fide cowboy, from south Texas to Montana along the western trail. Guided by his plainspoken, sure-saddled voice and the living, breathing feel of firsthand experience on every page, we relive dusty cattle drives, perilous river crossings, honor-based gunfights, and narrow escapes from buffalo stampedes, not to mention tall tales passed around the campfire and such unforgettable characters as Bull Durham and Bill Blades. The Log Of A Cowboy, newly introduced by Thomas McGuane, offers a true depiction of a cowboy's life and work as well as a classic adventure story of the great American frontier. REVIEWS"If ever there were such a thing as an all-time 'best' western, The Log Of A Cowboy is it." --The New York TimesIf all other books on trail-driving were destroyed, a reader could still get a just as authentic conception of trail men, trail work, range cattle, cow horses, and the cow country in general from The Log of a Cowboy. -- J. Frank Dobie"Personal and often poignant...The Log of a Cowboy is indeed a classic." --Sybil Downing, The Denver Post ISBN: 0-618-08348-0 publish date: 11/20/2000
