From Dust Jacket: One of the scarcest and best accounts of early cowboy life in New Mexico-- here reprinted in an edition limited to 550 copies and the type forms melted. James F. Hinkle (1864-1951) was Governor of New Mexico in 1923. He was a cowboy in the Pecos River valley near Roswell in the years following 1885. In 1937 Hinkle wrote this story of his ranch years and privately printed 35 copies of the little book as a gift to friends. It has been given a high rating by bibliographers who have compiled lists of important books on the Southwest including Ramon Adams, Wright Howes, and J.C. Dykes. This edition, the only one issued since the original, contains all of the text and illustrations of the first edition.
