of the West are well represented: fur trade and mountain men, overland narratives, mining, rail-
roads and transportation, Native Americans, military history, women’s history, social history,
material culture, law and lawlessness, Black history, natural history, agriculture, literature, local
history, economics, politics, missions and missionaries, etc.
We are pleased to have gathered so many items in Adams’s
The Rampaging Herd
that we have even more from Adams’s
Six-Guns and Saddle Leather: A Bibliography of Books and
Pamphlets on Western Outlaws and Gunmen
). Although we do not have all of the titles in
in the four parts of the Ranching Catalogue, we are o
ing a very respectable grouping of those collectibles. And while this catalogue contains many
appealing and arcane detours in the cattle country that allow an expanded and enhanced view of
ranching, bedrock ranching books are abundant throughout.
We have learned a great deal in working with these books. We hope that you will enjoy this cata-
logue as much as we have enjoyed compiling it.
