Hard covered book titled COWBOYS, INDIANS, AND GUNFIGHTERS The Story of the Cattle Kingdom by Albert Marrin. First Edition, 1993, with dust jacket, 196 pages, illustrated in full color and black & white prints, painting, photographs, and map.
Here is the story of the lively period of American history when ranchers and cowboys ruled the Great Plains. In his usual colorful style, Albert Marrin describes the battle for Texas's independence, with its rallying cry of "Remember the Alamo." He takes you to a roundup and on the long trail drives from Texas ranches to the railroads in Kansas. Life in famous cow towns, like Abilene and Dodge City, is re-created, and you learn about Wild Bill Hickock, Bat Masterson, Wyatt Earp, black rodeo star Bill Pickett, and other famous westerners.
You also meet the Comanche, the finest horsemen of the Great Plains, Indian heroes, such as Qaunah Parker and Sitting Bull, and hear the shameful story of the deliberate destruction of the buffalo by white hunters to speed the end of the Plains Indians' way of life.
