This popular book about the cattlemen of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries is based on interviews with participants of the trail-drive era. Here is the story of the early cattle kings told in a style as pungent as sweaty leather, as informal as a chuck wagon supper, and as real as these old-time cowmen and beef barons themselves. Douglas's parade of cattle kings include Ike Pryor, Shanghai Pierce, Mifflin Kennedy, Richard King, the Mavericks, the Slaughters, the Waggoners, and others.
