A Lone Star Cowboy. CHARLES A. SIRINGO

A Lone Star Cowboy.

CHARLES A. SIRINGO

Publication: Charles Siringo, 1919, Santa Fe

First edition. 8voi. Cloth, [8], 291 [1] pp., preface, illustrated. Essentially a reissue of Siringo's exceedingly rare 1885 original A Texas Cowboy.... Of the original edition John H. Jenkins wrote: "This is the most authentic book on the Texas cowboy. William Reese called it 'the first autobiography of a cowboy, and unquestionably one of the most important range books.' J. Frank Dobie said that 'no record of cowboy life has supplanted this rollicky, reckless, realistic chronicle, and that it is' the most-real non-fiction book on cowboy life.' Will Rogers commented 'Why, that was the cowboy's bible when I was growing up.' J. Evetts Haley said that "no single writer typified the achievement of cowboy literature, from the plane of the dime novel to one of character and distinction, so well as Charlie Siringo." Very good with very minor edgewear and previous owners' name on FFEP.
