The author, posing as a professional photographer, spent many exciting months following round-ups, and he has accompanied the Texas Rangers on many a hair-raising ride. The 'Lone Star' boys enjoyed having their picture taken and in return, they initiated him into nearly every phase of the exciting routine on the San Carlos Indian Reservations: the horse-changing, the round-ups and branding, the lonely night guards, the stories, songs, and jokes. And here, he shares his stories with the Texas cowboys.
