My Life on the Range

Clay, John


Privately printed

"This well-written book about the author's ranch experiences has become scarce in the first edition and is one of the much sought-after cattle books. It is said that Clay kept copies on his desk in Chicago, and friends helped themselves until the supply became exhausted. He was one of the better-known ranch owners of the Northwest and a well-educated Scotsman. His picture of ranch life is authentic. He relates many incidents of the Johnson County War and tells about Tom Horn." Adams, Six Guns 434; Adams, Herd 475.

Lot Amendments
