John Simpson Chisum, The Cattle King of the Pecos


 Product Description

 Revisited by Clifford R. Caldwell 

John Simpson Chisum left a trail across the American West so wide that a blind scout could follow it. Although his track can be picked up effortlessly, the gaps and sketchy information about the man leave us with but half the story. John Chisum's life story seems to have been defined by his association with Billy the Kid and a singular epic cattle drive across the barren expanses of West Texas to New Mexico. ......John Chisum did nothing in a small way. He rarely missed an opportunity to advance his own purposes. He built a cattle empire in New Mexico that was, at the time, second to none. To shamelessly borrow a line from Walter Noble Burns' book The Saga of Billy the Kid, John Chisum knew cows.


Clifford R. Caldwell has continually cultivated his interest in Western History since boyhood.
