Annotation First published in 1931, "North from Texas" describes the fifteen-hundred-mile odyssey on the Northern Trail. Shaw offers a rare first-hand account of the hard conditions of the trail and the many "bad men"--horse and cattle thieves, and worse--who inhabited it. He also describes the day-to-day operations of a cattle drive during the era of Texas" spectacularly large cattle companies and the reign of the "cattle kings" on the northern range. Shaw was twenty-seven when he wrote this account. He later became an important leader in the western livestock industry.
