Synopsis

In the last quarter of the nineteenth century an enterprising group of British gentlemen (members of a class hitherto unknown in American society) saw and seized a unique opportunity to graze huge herds of cattle, free of charge, on public lands in the then unsettled American West. They went into business on a truly remarkable scale and enormous sums of money were invested. This intriguing book tells the story of these intrepid men who set out to conquer the West and make their fortunes there. It also provides a rich and detailed history of the Wild West, its people and their lifestyles. Lawrence Woods artfully contrasts the harsh lot of the ordinary cowboy with the luxurious lifestyle enjoyed by members of the exclusive Cheyenne Club, where gentlemen dined on fresh oysters, smoked fine cigars and toasted their guests with imported French Champagne.
