Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

For more than a dozen tempestuous years, beginning in 1867, the Chisholm Trail was the Texas cowhands road to high adventure. It offered the excitement of sudden stampedes, hazardous river crossings, and brushes with Indian marauders. It promised, at the end of the drive, hilarious celebrations in the saloons, gambling parlors, and dance halls of frontier Kansas towns.

The account that appears on these pages reveals the courage, daring, and enterprise of the cattle owners and their cowboys, establishing them firmly as heroes in the westward expansion.

About the Author

Wayne Gard, a retired editorial writer for the Dallas Morning News and a former President of the Texas State History Association, was a widely know history of the frontier West and the author of several other books, including Frontier Justice, also published by the University of Oklahoma Press. For The Chisholm Trail, Gard interviewed surviving trail drivers and visited communities along the route in search of public records, manuscripts, archives, and newspaper files which would authenticate his information.
