Notes: "There's a few things I'm sorry for, of course," says John Leakey: "that I didn't go back to Texas while Grandad was alive [his grandfather came from Tennessee to Texas in 1847], that I never located Charlie Truntham, the Ranger who murdered my father, and that I've been so long getting this book done. If I could have hurried it up ten years or so, there would have been more old-timers here to read it." But the book does not belong to old-timers alone. The generation now living in the towns and cities that have sprung up on what was once open range will read with delight this spirited autobiography of a man who was well known as a top cowhand on the OX, W Barr, 777, and other ranches in New Mexico, Montana, and North Dakota during the years when the old West was turning into the new. - [Back Cover].
Description: 271 pages illustrations 24 cm
Responsibility: by John Leakey, as told to Nellie Snyder Yost.
