Description

Compiled by the Federal Writers' Project in Nebraska

These reminiscences of George W. Streeter, who prefers to be known as Dad Streeter, relate experiences and events in which he participated while living in Nebraska during the 1880's. He lived the life of a roving cowboy.

In addition to his stories of the range, his accounts of bull-whacking, mule skinning and stage-draiving, the pranking of tenderfeet and missionaries, his meetings with Cattle Kate, Calamity Jane and Buffalo Bill, the hazards of prairie fires and blizzards, frontier justice and encounters with Indians, are a valuable contribution to the folklore of the West.
