The Drover's Curse (Paperback)
Here's your invitation to ride alongside a real cowboy. Drovers pushed herds of longhorns all across the middle of America for much of the 1800s. The life of a drover on the trail is a series of both blessings and curses. Survival is the goal. There is an adventure in every twist and turn of Andrew (Andy) Graham's path through life.....orphaned at a Kansas fort and herding cattle at 16, Andy found it necessary to become Clyde Driscoll. Clyde saved a failing Nebraska fort for Custer and the 7th Cavalry before he headed south to fight in the Civil War. Returning to the life of a drover meant leaving the Army as a deserter, matching wits with a notorious lawman and watching the birth of a Kansas Cowtown.
As a tag-along with Andy and Clyde you will learn about boots, tack, snakes, blizzards, steers, lovely little women of the night, life on the trail, and Texas Rangers.
Welcome along. Let's mount up.
