A Hundred Ways to Die Before Sundown
The Life of a Cowboy in The Republic of Texas
Life in early Texas, in the 1840’s was tough. It was guaranteed challengin’, with little or no reward at all. Folks worked hard, mostly ‘cause they had to, and partly ‘cause they din’t know no better. A man in his thirties could look sixty, with a face like the bark of an old mesquite tree and hands like rope and old rawhide.
A man’s wife, if he had one, generally din’t fair much better, with a face like an old washrag, worn out, hand made clothes, and no shoes. Their kids were filthy, and the family dog was prawlly the best looking of the bunch.
