Inhaltsangabe: In the summer of 1979 John Erickson learned that Lawrence Ellzey was looking for a ranch hand. “Lawrence and his son Tom had a cow/calf and yearling operation headquartered on Wolf Creek, some twenty-five miles southeast of Perryton, Texas, and I was interested in the job. There were many qualities I admired in the Ellzey family, but the one which bound us most closely together was our love of ranch life, in all its forms and expressions: the beauty of a sunset on Wolf Creek; the changes in the weather; pride in horses and horsemanship; an endless curiosity about the land and the peculiar habits of animals; and most of all, work.?

This book comes from the journals Erickson kept during his two years as an LZ cowboy. He has always kept journals of his ranch work, some of the material being used for facts and details of Panhandle Cowboy , The Modern Cowboy and Cowboy Country . A second reading of his LZ journals after a twelve-year lapse convinced Erickson that these stories did not need to be rewritten and shouldn?t be. They are presented as the “log of a cowboy,? to borrow a term from Andy Adams—how it felt to be a cowboy in the Texas Panhandle in the years 1979–1981: the snow, the mud, the cattle drives, the pranks, the accidents, the equipment, the horses, the frustrations, the triumphs.

Hank the Cowdog readers will recognize names, locations, and incidents from the Hank series: Tuerto, Drover, Casey the Bronc, the machine shed, the calf shed, the sick pen, and the gas tanks. High Loper, Sally May, and Slim were originally patterned after Tom Ellzey, Janet Ellzey and Erickson himself.

Inhaltsangabe: This contemporary "log of a cowboy, " to borrow a term from Andy Adams, reveals the daily life of a cowboy during the years 1979-1981. "I came up one steer short, 158 instead of 159. I rode through them again and got another count, the same: 158. So I went back to the junkyard. This time, l walked it afoot, checking out every hiding place. I drove the steers out into the open. Still one short. Then I happened to look around and saw a steer peeking out over the steering wheel of one of the wrecked cars. He was inside the car and appeared ready to drive off." Cowboying on the LZ Ranch in the Texas Panhandle did have its lighter moments. In fact, humor was sometimes all that kept John Erickson and the Ellzey family going as they struggled through a depressed cattle market, drought, sickness, injuries, and West Texas weather: . "The temperature at noon was down to five degrees and the chill factor was minus thirty-seven. That is killing cold. It wasn't a fit day to be out, so naturally we went out to feed cattle. I wore my wool long johns, with six layers of clothes above the waist and three below. My outer shell was my big cowhide coat. We drove through the steers on wheat pasture in the morning. There really wasn't much we could do but Lawrence can't stand to sit around in a nice warm house while his cattle are out there suffering. If we couldn't make them comfortable, at least we could suffer with them."
