Annotation In this earliest known day-by-day journal of a cattle drive from Texas to Kansas, Jack Bailey, a North Texas farmer, describes what it was like to live and work as a cowboy in the southern plains just after the Civil War. Bailey shares many of his inner thoughts and feelings, including his frequent homesickness, and he records his take on many of the burning social and political issues of the day, such as post-Civil War race relations.
