Cattle Kingdom: The Hidden History of the Cowboy West, Paperback / softback Book

Cattle Kingdom: The Hidden History of the Cowboy West Paperback / softback



Cattle Kingdom reveals how the West rose and fell, and how its legacy defines us today.

The tale takes us from dust-choked cattle drives to the unlikely splendors of boomtowns like Abilene, Kansas, and Cheyenne, Wyoming.

We meet a diverse cast, from cowboy Teddy Blue to failed rancher and future president Teddy Roosevelt.

Christopher Knowlton shows us how they and others like them could achieve so many outsized feats: killing millions of bison, building the first opera house on the open range, driving cattle by the thousands, and much more.

Cattle Kingdom is a revelatory new view of the Old West.
