Description
For Pictures of the Past the author wove old buffalo hunters' stories into descriptions of the herds, the slaughter, Indian incidents, Fort Griffin, the battle at Adobe Walls, and much more. History That Will Never Be Repeated records lore of the cattle industry in West Texas from 1876. In these vivid accounts by cowboys and ranchers are some of the most emblematic events of the American West--riding line, working roundup, turning a drift herd--recalled not for their romance but for their hardship and for the sheer endurance required of the men who lived them. The remarkable period photography of George Robertson and Erwin E. Smith illustrates the book in duotone throughout.
