Summary
"Still wet behind the ears in 1894, Carl Benedict was "crazy to get away and work on the range." In the summer, he hooked up with a big outfit called the Figure 8 to round up cattle in the Texas Panhandle. Out of that experience came this book, published fifty years later, about what it was really like to be a cowboy in some ornery country checkered by canyons and gyp water springs."---Amazon
