From the Publisher
The Texas Longhorn made more history than any other breed of cattle the world has ever known. Dobie's book, originally published in 1941, tells their story. The Longhorns were more than a breed--they were a race. Gaunt, wiry, intractable, they were themselves pioneers in a hard, strange land. Dobie writes of the Spanish conquistadors who brought the cattle, the progenitor of the Longhorn. He writes of Texas cowboys, rustlers and catches the terrible excitement of the stampede, the poetry of lighting on a sea of seething horns. No historian or naturalist has ever so related an animal to the land, to men, and to history.
