Summary
During the early years of the twentieth century, when he was still in teens, the author of this book worked as a cowboy on the Triangle Bar Triangle Ranch at Chaco Canyon, New Mexico, on the edge of the Navajo Reservation. This was the famous Wetherill ranch, located barely a stone's throw from the spectacular Anasazi ruins of Pueblo Bonito. Schmedding's absorbing account of his years as a cowboy and his later experiences at nearby Sanders and Keams Canyon trading posts in Arizona offer an authentic view of the day-to-day life of real cowboys and real Indians, mingled with fascinating glimpses of the pioneering archaeological activities of the Wetherills and the Hyde exploring expedition -- Back cover
