Told with campfire-story spirit, "The Log of a Cowboy" is of the best tales of the cowboy life ever written. Drawing from his own life as a cattle driver, Andy Adams recounts the adventures of America's frontier. Through such memorable characters as Bill Blades and Bull Durham, we become witness to gunfights, buffalo stampedes, and cattle drives from Texas to Montana. 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" offers a true depiction of a cowboy's life and work as well as a classic adventure story of the great American frontier.
