Synopsis of Trail Fever: The Life of a Texas Cowboy

George Washington Saunders (1854-1933) rode in his first cattle drive at the age of five and got caught in his first stampede when he was ten. A Texas trail driver, he survived it all--freezing rains, lightning storms, desert dust, Kiowa and Comanche raiders, bandits, days and nights of herding without rest. In later life he compiled a unique historical record of the trail-driving era. The author has worked from Saunders's own writings and interviewed his grandchildren to produce an award-winning* biography of this important figure of the American West.

*Cited by the San Antonio Conservation Society for outstanding contribution toward the preservation of the history of Texas; recommended on Houghton Mifflin's "Bibliography for Level 4, Unit 4: The Civil War and the Closing of the Frontier," the University of Nebraska's "Children's Literature of the Great Plains," The English Toolbox's "Fun Books to Read: History," and other reading lists.

Lone Star Library

A well-researched biography for young readers about a man who saw it all from the saddle, George W. Saunders, a cowboy on the Texas frontier who later researched the stories that went into the 1,000-page classic, The Trail Drivers of Texas.
