Stampede! Stampede! by Andy Thomas
A peaceful night camp on the Western Cattle Trail explodes into action as the cowboys mount their night horses and race to overtake the riotous mob of half-wild longhorns. Hours of fast, hard work lie ahead.
Andy Adams vividly describes two such stampedes in his book The Log of a Cowboy. It’s compelling drama: frantic shouts and orders, blind plunges through thickets, firing pistols, and the relentless efforts of the men.
