He got here up the path to Montana from Texas with the long-horned herds that have been to inventory the northern levels; he punched cows in Montana whilst there wasn't a fence within the territory; and he married a daughter of Granville Stuart, the recognized early-day stockman and Montana pioneer. For greater than fifty years he was once identified to cowmen from Texas to Alberta as "Teddy Blue."
This is his tale, as informed to Helena Huntington Smith, who says that the publication is "all Teddy Blue. My half used to be to maintain out of how and never mess it up by means of being literary.... as the cowboy flourished in the midst of the Victorian age, that's definitely a humorous paradox, no real looking photograph of him was once ever drawn in his personal day. here's a self-portrait by means of a cowboy that's complete and honest." And Teddy Blue himself says, "Other old-timers have informed all approximately stampedes and swimming rivers and what a poor time we had, yet they by no means installed any of the thrill, and enjoyable used to be a minimum of half it."
So the following it is—the cowboy vintage, with the "terrible" instances and the "fun" that have entertained readers far and wide.
