Illustrated by H. D. Bugbee. Publisher's original tan cloth with titles printed in brown on the front board and spine. Boards display light shelf wear and the spine is slightly toned. The contents are tight and the book is generally in very good condition in a somewhat worn and price-clipped dust jacket.
Reese, Six Score 53: "Best biography of a cowman ever written. Goodnight's career spanned the history of the development of West Texas, from Indian fighting to oil wells. Goodnight, while not the largest cattleman in Texas, was undoubtedly the most important.... Haley's beautifully written biography, perhaps his best book, is an ample vehicle for a mighty figure, and is a classic of American biography."
