Description:Very Good. First issue in the original tan buckram binding with...Very Good. First issue in the original tan buckram binding with green and gilt stamping and beveled boards, all page edges gilt. A solid Very Good copy with boards somewhat soiled, minor wear to the spine ends and some pencil markings erased from the front end paper, otherwise a relatively clean tight copy. The first major work illustrated by Frederick Remington, who up until that point had only sketched for magazines. Remington would go on to become one of the most prominent artists of the American West. The book is based on Roosevelt's experiences ranching in the Dakota Badlands during the cattle boom of the 1880s. The book documents his everyday routine, herding, hunting and working the ranch, as well as his extraordinary exploits such as the capture of three outlaws and guarding them for 40 straight hours without sleep, while transporting them to trial. A fantastic early account of western life by an American icon and one closely associated with the tough western lifestyle. Very Good.

This was a wonderful read. Roosevelt writes in detail about his experiences and observations. He has keen observations about everything connected with cowboys and that era. I had to use a magnifying glass with the Time-Life edition but it was well worth the effort! You can tell that Theo R. was intelligent with a mature outlook. He kept his dignity. He had just lost his wife and mother and went West to recover.
I have always admired Teddy Roosevelt and this latest book here of mine is another reason I so admire this man. A "mans man", a through and through American patriot who lived and represented America's best ideals. It is clear through this book how the Western Ranch life he experienced here as contained in this book help to shape the great leader he already was and was too become for America. Buy it........read it..........and experiece one of America's great true tales of a time and people gone by.
