How Texas Cowboys Herded Longhorns and Became an American Icon

August 15 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

Tim Lehman’s most recent book, Up the Trail: How Texas Cowboys Herded Longhorns and Became an American Icon (How Things Worked) explores the big cattle drives -the largest, longest, and ultimately the last of the great forced animal migrations in human history. Spilling out of Texas, they spread longhorns, cowboys, and the culture that roped the two together throughout the American West. In cities like Abilene, Dodge City, and Wichita, buyers paid off ranchers, ranchers paid off wranglers, and railroad lines took the cattle east to the packing plants of St. Louis and Chicago. Dr. Tim Lehman is Professor of History and Political Science at Rocky Mountain College.   In Memory of Marge McArthur
