This autobiography of life on a New Mexico cattle spread during the years 1880 to 1940 was fascinating.

It was filled with incredible adventures and sprinkled with insights that could apply to today's cultural and political landscape. Along the way origins of idioms still in use today came to light. The author would have been a contemporary of my grandmother (although in different states). I wondered what my grandmother's story would have been, had she written it down.
