Those who have gleaned their knowledge of Texas cattle drives and frontier settlements from TV and Hollywood westerns are in for some surprises. . . . Robert Dykstra 'tells it as it really was' in Wichita, Abilene, Ellsworth, Dodge City, and Caldwell during the two decades following the Civil War when entrepreneurs endeavored to capture the Texas cattle trade and utilize it as the economic base for building another Chicago or St. Louis on the edge of the Great Plains.--Publishers Weekly-- "Publishers Weekly"
