Teddy Blue: True Adventures of a Wild West Cowboy [NEW for 2016]
“Other old-timers have told all about stampedes and swimming rivers and what a terrible time we had, but they never put in any of the fun, and fun was at least half of it.” So said “Teddy Blue” Abbott, one of the American frontier’s “cowpunchers”—those hard-working herdsmen who drove cattle north to the new railroads of the late 19th century. Born in England, “Teddy Blue” was a feeble ten-year-old when his parents brought him to Nebraska. He was still a boy when he found himself on his first ride with the cowpunchers. It began a lifetime of exciting adventures from Texas to Montana, highlighted by rousing encounters with “Buffalo Bill” Cody, Calamity Jane, and many others.
