MEDIA REVIEWS
"This thundering book by the author of Old Jules is the story of the vast cattle industry of the American West; stupendous in length, concept, and achievement, it is the result of a lifetime of knowledge and research. . . . The whole story is here, long but never dull, written with humor and understatement."-Kirkus * Kirkus *
"Here, tough as whang leather, nourishing as pemmican, turbulent as Dodge City on a Saturday night in the late 1870s, is what time may well decide is the definitive history of the founding and flourishing of the cattle industry on this continent. . . . This splendid book says more (and says it better) about the most romantic figures of the old West than dozens of other books that have ranged over this familiar ground. Mari Sandoz has given herself room to move with tremendous drive and scholarship."-Victor P. Hass, Chicago Sunday Tribune -- Victor P. Hass * Chicago Sunday Tribune *
"Drawing the fullest flavor from her expert descriptive technique, Mari Sandoz has written a regional history to stand among the best of its kind."-Library Journal * Library Journal *
"[The Cattlemen] is full of colorful anecdotes, many from the 19th Century, and holds fascination for anyone interested in cattle drives, cattle ranching, or the Wild West."-Kirk Zebolsky, Omaha Literature Examiner * Omaha Literature Examiner *
