Title: Deep Trails in the Old West. A Frontier Memoir
Description: U S A, University of Oklahoma Press, 2011. First Edition, Binding: Cloth, Fine/Near Fine. 8vo - over 7" - 9" Tall Octavo 9780806141862 Hardback Hardback. First Edition. Deep Trails in the Old West. A Frontier Memoir. Cowboy and drifter Frank Clifford lived a lot of lives - and raised a lot of hell - in the first quarter of his life. He spent the rest of it keeping a lid on what those lives were and where that hell-raising had occured. The number of times he changed his name - Clifford being just one of them - suggests that he often travelled just steps ahead of the law. During the 1870s and 1880s his restless spirit led him all over the Southwest, crossing the paths of many of the era's most notorious characters, most notably Clay Allison and Billy the Kid. More than just an entertaining and informative narrative of his Wild West adventures, Clifford's memoir also paints a picture of how ranchers and ordinary folk lived, worked and stayed alive during those tumultuous years. Edited and annotated by Frederick Nolan, this book is likey one of the last eyewitness histories of the Old West ever to be discovered. In unveiling this work, Nolan faithfully preserves Clifford's own words, providing helpful annotation without censoring either the author's strong opinions or his racial biases. For all its roughness, this book is a rich resource of frontier lore, customs, and manners, told by a man who saw the Old West at its wildest - and lived to tell the tale. Illustrated. 317 pp.
