The land had to be tamed, but it was not a desert. There were times when life was hard. A young cowboy, working for ten dollars a month and his board and keep, earned every penny he made. A man plowing a yoke of oxen in a field that seemed never to end did not see much that was romantic. He was too tired.Life was hard for the women and children, too. Just preparing meals was tedious and time-consuming. When garden vegetables ripened, everyone pitched in to help with the canning and preseving. Children shelled peas and beans and helped dry peaches, apples and apricots.In this book, you will find a taste of the way people lived and ate during a time when the country was growing and great, empty spaces were being filled with settlers.We hope that you will enjoy this step back into the pages of history.(FROM THE HOME ON THE RANGE)Friend Joe. Get your things and come to Texas. I hired on to the Circle C and they are always ready to hire a good man. The pay is $20 and keep and they have a good cook. He makes the best cobblers I ever tasted, even better than back home. We get eggs and flapjacks and biscuits for breakfast. Each man has his own bunk at the bunkhouse. I hired on as a wrangler. Thats just to start with. Im going to get my own ranch one of these days.- Your friend Ellis
