The cattle came over with the Spaniards. They landed at Vera Cruz in 1521-- six heifers and a young bull of sturdy Andalusian stock. During the next three centuries the Longhorns, the cowboys, and the ranching slowly developed, and as the years passed wild herds of both cattle and horses roamed the Southwest in the grasslands, the sparse brush country, the dry plains and the rugged mountains. Dee Brown, well-known author of Bury My Heart at Wounded Knee, along with Martin F. Schmitt, presents the thrilling story of the brave and determined men who rounded up the cattle and led them out of the Western plains and into the city markets.
