If you like the Old West, buy a copy of ‘Up the Trail to Kansas’

When you think of cattle drives, do you see a seasoned trail boss, a grizzled old cook, and dozens of young eager men pushing longhorns through all kinds of hardships? About the only accurate part of that picture are the longhorns and hardships. “Up the Trail to Kansas in 1868,” written by Jack Bailey and published by the University of Oklahoma Press provides some surprises. It is a first day by day account of a cowboy told by a real cowboy.
