Summary
Cowboys and Cattle Kings presents a highly important evaluation of what has happened to the cattle raiser of the High Plains and Rocky Mountain areas since the fencing of the open range--how he lives, what he thinks, and how he conducts his business. Mr. Sonnichsen considers the roots and background of the present-day cowman, discusses his dress and his code, and goes on to describe modern ranch children, ranch women, cowboys, managers, and others in the business. He clarifies the cowman's position in recent controversies concerning grazing and lease rights and control of the range. From the enormous "ranch empires" to the small enterprises, from the strong-holds of the old-time ranchman to the popular dude ranches fro tourists, he touches every segment of the industry. Most important, perhaps, is the sympathetic account of the problems and troubles of modern ranching--blizzards, droughts, rustlers, financial burdens--and the counterbalancing advantages of ranching as a way of life --Book jacket
