Beschreibung

One of the last Old-time cowboys here tells his own story: his boyhood in Texas, wandering from ranch to ranch in the Southwest, the trek to Montana with a trail herd, and his life thereafter among the people and ranches of the area. His account is full of anecdotes, humorous or tragic, which themselves illuminate facets of a way of life that is no more.

Bob Kennon knew the Ketchums, Kid Curry, and Western artist Charles M. Russell, who was his friend, as well as many prominent ranchmen of his day.

"Perhaps I am the last living rider of those boys who, in 1896, came up that long trail to Montana from what was then the largest ranch in the world, the Terrazas Ranch in Old Mexico," he begins. And he goes on to tell just what the cowboy business was really like not only on the trail and the range, but in the wild, infrequent visits to town, encounters with camp cooks and titled Englishmen, rodeo performances, and all that belongs to the cowboy's existence. The smell of the bunkhouse and the atmosphere of the range pervade every page.

A typical cowboy, Bob Kennon did not marry until late in life; indeed, he never seemed quite ready to settle down. But settle he did. After his cowboy days were over, he married and held responsible job as forest ranger, stock inspector, deputy sheriff, and doorkeeper for the state senate of Montana, as well as becoming a rancher himself.

Ramon F. Adams, Western bibliophile and lexicographer of Dallas, knows the lore and language of the range as perhaps no other man does today. He was the ideal choice to arrange Bob Kennon's story for publication. Mr. Kennon, he says, "through in his eighties, had a keen mind and deep interest in the history of Montana, he began sending me the story of his life, more material, in fact, than I could use." That he was made good use of that material, this book attests.

Joe Beeler of Sedona, Arizona, has been described as "the Charles M. Russell of our time." His paintings, drawings, and bronzes of western subjects are now widely held by museums, institutions, and private collections
