About this book

The story of the Texas Longhorn, that sinewy and headstrong beast of legend, is foundational to the history of the cattle country of the American West. The Longhorn is identified with the fiercely independent cowboy character, both being colourful resourceful survivors. With wit and folk wisdom in the tradition of the cattle drover, Lester Galbreath offers these ruminations on the breed, his insight gained from the vantage point of his 35 years of service as the park ranger who wrangles the Texas State Longhorn herd headquartered at Fort Griffin State Park in Shackelford County, Texas.
