“The Log of a Cowboy” program, Museum of the Western Prairie
May 2, 7:00 pm–8:00 pm
Andy Adams (1859–1935), the author of The Log of a Cowboy, is celebrated as one of the most important chroniclers of the range cattle industry and cowboys. Tracey Hanshew, an Oklahoma humanities scholar, will review Adams’ account of a trail drive north from Texas with vivid descriptions of stampedes and river crossings as well as the yarns cowboys told around the campfire. This event is hosted by the Western Trail Historical Society. The program is free and open to the public.
