Ramon Adams explains why this goldmine of cattle history was in desperate need of reprinting. "One of the most important and most sought-after books on the cattle industry. In all my years of book collecting, I have never seen this book listed in a dealer's catalog. When a dealer finds a copy, he always has a waiting list. All copies of this exceedingly rare book were issued to members of the national Live Stock Association."
