My Life On The Range.

by John. Clay

Publication: 1952

First edition. Cloth, 366pp., frontis, num. illus., charts, tables. T.E.G. "One of the best books on ranching."---Everett Graff. "This well-written book about the authors' ranch experience has become scarce in the first edition, and is one of the much-sought-after cattle books.... He was one of the better-known ranch owners of the Northwest and a well-educated Scotchman. His picture of ranch life is authentic. He relates many incidents of the Johnson County War and tells about Tom Horn."---Ramon Adams. "A Scot, he traveled widely in the American West and Canada, observing closely and accurately. He played an important part in financing several large companies, and was instrumental in the reorganization of the failed Swan Land and Cattle Co. The book is best on the Wyoming ranges, where British investment was heaviest. There is much on the Wyoming Stock Growers Association."---Bill Reese. A classic work. Light offsetting to endpapers, else very good, tight copy.
