In this colorful and comprehensive history of the cattle industry in the American West, Paul I. Wellman reaches back to the early sixteenth century, when the first cattle were brought from Spain to Mexico. He hits his stride in describing the great cattle drives that began after the Civil War when Texans desperately needed to ex-pand their markets.
