Reviews


"Lively . . . Analysis does not bog down the storytelling. Knowlton deftly balances close-ups and bird's-eye views. We learn countless details . . . [but] more important, we learn why the story played out as it did." - New York Times Book Review

"Cattle Kingdom is the best all-around study of the American cowboy ever written. Every page crackles with keen analysis and vivid prose about the Old West. A must read!" -- Douglas Brinkley, author of Rightful Heritage: Franklin D. Roosevelt and the Land of America and The Wilderness Warrior: Theodore Roosevelt and the Crusade for America

"A fresh look at the U.S. cattle industry . . . This vastly informative volume will be of interest to general readers and a welcome addition for all library collections."--Library Journal

"Quality book . . . Knowlton's absorbing work demonstrates that the years of lucrative cattle driving may have been short, but meatpacking and transportation innovations and the rugged individualist ideology of the West maintain their place of importance in American life." --Publishers Weekly

"An informative and well-written examination of a key area." --Booklist

"Cattle Kingdom accomplishes the rare feat of capturing the worlds of cattlemen and cowboys in all their color, while also covering well the global economic and environmental tides that made the cattle kingdom rise and fall." --Stephen Aron, president of the Western History Association and the Robert N. Burr Department Chair, UCLA Department of History

"A pleasing contribution to the history of the post-Civil War frontier."--Kirkus Reviews
