Summary
John Hendrix drew upon his own varied experiences for this panoramic view of West Texas ranch life, presented here in an integral compilation of flavorful articles written originally for The Cattleman. Touching upon virtually every facet of the cattle industry, they examine economic influences and technological changes as well as the personal and emotional aspects of range life. Here are accurate, detailed, fascinating descriptions of the day-to-day life of the cowboy, the chuck-wagon cook, the range boss, the men of the cow camp and their activities, their duties and their entertainments, the clothes they wore, the food they ate, the horses they rode, the language they spoke. Written in direct language and savoring of the life they describe, these articles capture the beauty of the cattle country{u2014}as well as its violence, hardships, drudgery. John Hendrix{u2019}s affection for the land, the people, and the life gives his writing a special warmth that his readers are sure to recognize and admire
