Abstract:

Here is a collection of gripping cowboy stories - written by a real-life cowboy. From the touching and elegiac "Around the Spade Wagon", a tale of two friends reminiscing over a campfire, to the thrilling kidnap by bandits of "The Ransom of Don Ramon Mora", to the slice-of-life account of a wolf hunt in "A Winter Round-up", the tales of Cattle Brands are steeped in the sights, smells and sounds of the old West. Adams knew his subject well, having spent a decade on the cattle trails of Texas and beyond in the 1890s. With fourteen short stories in all, Cattle Brands is a treat for all lovers of Western fiction.--Amazon.com.
