Ranch Life and the Hunting Trail (Paperback): Theodore Roosevelt Ranch Life and the Hunting Trail (Paperback)
Theodore Roosevelt; Illustrated by Frederic Remington

"If I had not spent my year in North Dakota, I would never have become President of the United States," declared Theodore Roosevelt. The future statesman took his first steps toward the highest office in the land in the Dakota Badlands of the 1880s, where he began his transformation from aristocrat to democrat. Roosevelt left his home in the East as Theodore, but he returned as "Teddy," a rugged outdoorsman and soon-to-be hero of the Rough Riders.
Recounted with infectious enthusiasm, Roosevelt's tales range from ranching on the open plains to hunting in the mountains. His reminiscences conjure up the vanished world of the frontier, with thrilling accounts of chasing bighorn sheep and horse thieves, encountering Indians, branding cattle, and bronco busting. Roosevelt's recollections helped elevate the cowboy's image from that of an ordinary farm laborer into a figure of nobility and courage. The works of Frederic Remington, another great mythmaker of the Old West, illustrate these memoirs. Sixty-five black-and-white images by this renowned American artist complement Roosevelt's stories of freedom and self-reliance.

Those who are interested in the novel and picturesque character of the cowboy and the cattlemen, will find much that is pleasing in Mr. Roosevelt's faithful description. The cattle country has been treated in an almost historic manner; the author carries the reader into the quaint ranch life of the West with an ease that makes him revel, for the time, in the glories of the mud-chinked cabins and humble fare, until the song of the meadow lark is the sweetest sound in the world. The sportsman will be more interested in following Mr. Roosevelt in pursuit of the big-horn sheep, the white goat or the pronghorn; and no reader who has hunted in the West will question the accuracy of scene or incident. The author has gone even further than merely to narrate his hunting experiences, for the game that he hunts is also classified from the standpoint of the naturalist. The book is pleasing to the eye, and special efforts in this direction have been made in having it illustrated by Frederick Remington. This book is worthy of a place in any sportsman's library. -Rollin E. Smith. The Sportsman's Magazine, 1897

John Ermine of the Yellowstone (Paperback): Frederic Remington John Ermine of the Yellowstone (Paperback)
Frederic Remington; Introduction by Gary Scharnhorst
R356 R290 Discovery Miles 2 900 Save R66 (19%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

No one knew how the blue-eyed, blond-haired white baby came to be abandoned, but the Crow tribe that found him raised him as one of its own. As he grew into adolescence, White Weasel was taken to Crooked-Bear, a white man who had long ago abandoned society for a solitary mountain existence and who acted as counselor to the Crow elders. Under Crooked-Bear's tutelage, White Weasel was schooled in white ways and rechristened John Ermine. Frederic Remington's compelling tale relates Ermine's successful reintroduction into white society, his heroic exploits as a scout in the military, and his growing interest in a white lady, Miss Katherine Searles. In his love for Katherine, Ermine must face the complexities and inequalities of American society. Although American culture may well laud Ermine's military prowess and personal integrity, since he is "wild" he can never truly rise through the ranks of society. It is inevitable that Ermine's story ends in tragedy.
"John Ermine of the Yellowstone" is both an epic Western in the classic sense and a complex tale that captures the conflict between European Americans and Native Americans in the Wild West. John Ermine is the tragic character caught between two cultures, unable to assimilate fully into either. Famed artist Frederic Remington uses his pen to convey the irreparable stalemate between two groups of people in an untamed West while making a moving argument for the preservation of a truly wild western front.
