While unnamed, herein is described the author's own family of "tenderfeet," i.e. Easterners who decide to experience sheep ranching in Kansas on a ten-thousand acre, ten-thousand sheep ranch, "not only twelve miles from a lemon, but a thousand miles from a strawberry" (Wright 4668). A contemporary reviewer describes the narrative as "a true story, the outcome of the author's own experience on a Kansas sheep ranch, and it is as fresh and bracing as a prairie breeze. There is a good deal of information mixed in with picturesque descriptions and the result is a book that will serve the double purpose of entertainment and instructions" (Demorest's Monthly Magazine, "Review of the New Publications," 1885, p. 73).
Rare in such fine condition as here. (Inventory #: 3312)
