Andy Adams (May 3, 1859 - September 26, 1935) was an American writer of western fiction. Andy Adams was born in Indiana. His parents were Andrew and Elizabeth (Elliott) Adams. As a boy he helped with the cattle and horses on the family farm. During the early 1880s he went to Texas, where he stayed for 10 years, spending much of that time driving cattle on the western trail Andy Adams (May 3, 1859 - September 26, 1935) was an American writer of western fiction. Andy Adams was born in Indiana. His parents were Andrew and Elizabeth (Elliott) Adams. As a boy he helped with the cattle and horses on the family farm. During the early 1880s he went to Texas, where he stayed for 10 years, spending much of that time driving cattle on the western trails. In 1890 he tried working as a businessman, but the venture failed, so he tried gold-mining in Colorado and Nevada. In 1894, he settled in Colorado Springs, where he lived until his death. He began writing at the age of 43, publishing his most successful book, The Log of a Cowboy, in 1903. His other works include A Texas Matchmaker (1904), The Outlet (1905), Cattle Brands (1906), Reed Anthony, Cowman: An Autobiography (1907), Wells Brothers (1911), and The Ranch on the Beaver (1927).The Log of a Cowboy is an account of a five-month drive of 3,000 cattle from Brownsville, Texas, to Montana during 1882 along the Great Western Cattle Trail. Although the book is fiction, it is based on Adams's own experiences, and it is considered by many to be literature's best account of cowboy life. Adams was disgusted by the unrealistic cowboy fiction being published in his time; The Log of a Cowboy was his response. It is still in print, and even modern reviewers consider it compelling. The Chicago Herald said: "As a narrative of cowboy life, Andy Adams' book is clearly the real thing. It carries its own certificate of authentic first-hand experience on every page." E. Boyd Smith (Smith, E. Boyd (Elmer Boyd), 1860-1943).ILLUSTRATOR

    The classical days of cattle herding in the Wild West has left an impression on people even now, more than 135 years after the dust has settled. This colorful period of American, in truth only lasted slightly more than twenty years. With the dawning of the Twentieth Century, expansion of the railways made large cattle drives to railheads such as Abilene and Dodge City obsolete. The Outlet presents, in the form of a narrative, the world of the cattle drivers in its heyday.

This colorful period of American, in truth only lasted slightly more than twenty years. With the dawning of the Twentieth Century, expansion of the railways made large cattle drives to railheads such as Abilene and Dodge City obsolete. The Outlet presents, in the form of a narrative, the world of the cattle drivers in its heyday. He doesn’t only describe the scenes that are still so familiar through film and television but introduces a basic but little thought of aspect; the business end. By 1889 the open range was being cut up and parceled with the introduction of barbed wire. This book is written in the form of a log and describes life as it was without embellishments. Seen through the eyes of a eye witness, the Wild West doesn’t seem so wild. It relays the tale of people surviving in a raw and dangerous land. I think anyone interested in seeing a true picture of the American west between the years 1875-1895 will enjoy this book. Andy Adams (1859-1935) wrote nine books about life in the west. This is the second book I’ve read from his hand and wouldn’t hesitate in reading the remaining seven. I recommend this book to everyone.

    Incredible how the same themes of geography and local versus federal were also such an issue then.
