A true-to-life narrative of the escapades and challenges of the frontier's legendary event: the cowboy cattle drive. The Log of a Cowboy brings to life an important, yet short-lived, piece of the American Old West. It's here that the cowboy earned his reputation and admiration, and it's through protagonist Tommy Moore that we learn of some of the challenges of the legendary cattle drive. Run-ins with Indian tribes, cattle hustlers, shoot-'em-ups, and the lure of "good whiskey and bad women," are just some of the troubles that Moore faces, all told with that classic cowboy swagger. It's not just the thrill of adventure that makes this such a fascinating tale; The Log of a Cowboy is often seen as a narrative of Andy Adams's own life after twelve years in the saddle, and although some liberties were taken, it remains one of the most reliable accounts ever written, helping cement the lawless, and revered, Wild West into a national subconscious. Through Moore we learn cowboy colloquialisms like "drifting" and "cutting," the perils of stampedes, and the innate intuition of these frontier men. Adams deftly weaves stories within a story, bringing fabled cattleman Shanghai Pierce into this literary world, spinning tales of occult sciences, hitchhiking ox, and astonishing "bear signs." Much like the Pony Express, the cattle drives of the Old West remain an essential part of American culture, and Adams's narrative helps to keep it alive through the generations. This is a must-read for any fans of the Old West, a time when courage and adventure were all part of a day's work. Skyhorse Publishing is proud to publish a broad range of books for readers interested in fiction that takes place in the old West. Westerns--books about outlaws, sheriffs, chiefs and warriors, cowboys and Indians--are a genre in which we publish regularly. Our list includes international bestselling authors like Zane Gray and Louis L'Amour, and many more. While not every title we publish becomes a New York Times bestseller or a national bestseller, we are committed to books on subjects that are sometimes overlooked and to authors whose work might not otherwise find a home.… (mais)

The story of a cattle drive. Very authentic. ( )
  pgabj | Apr 23, 2021 |
Well-written account of a cattle drive from Texas to Montana in the year 1882. For the first time I understood what cowboys actually did in addition to strumming guitars and blasting away with their six-shooters - though they do some of that too. ( )

author's account of his first trail drive, fascinating details of cowboy's life firsthand
  Amante | Oct 2, 2014 |
J. Frank Dobie, an authority closer to the time period described this book as the best memoirs to be found of real life on the trail. I'm going to agree. It's not that much like the TV show, "Rawhide", but it seems true. ( )

An interesting first hand account of a cattle drive from the southeastern most tip of Texas to the Yellowstone area of Montana. Well written. Somewhat sanitized, but includes vernacular of the day. ( )
