The Chisholm Trail By Wayne Gard

$24.95

 Product Description

For more than a dozen tempestuous years following 1867, the Chisholm Trail was the Texas cowhand's 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. For The Chisholm Trail, Wayne Gard interviewed surviving trail drivers and visited communites along the route in search of public records, manuscripts, archives, and newspaper files. Drawing on these and other sources, he recounts the courage, daring, and enterprise of the cattle owners and their cowboys, establishing them firmly as heroes in America's westward expansion.

Wayne Gard, an editorial writer for the Dallas Morning news and the President of the Texas State Historical Association, was also a widley known historian of the frontier West and the author of several books , including Frontier Justice, also published by the University of Oklahoma Press.
