Ranch Life and the Hunting Trail is a detailed, wide-ranging look at life in western America by the future president from his ranch on the Little Missouri, covering the range, the ranch, the round-up and much more. Combines the talents of two of the most important chroniclers of the early American west. Frederic Remington was “the most successful Western illustrator in the ‘Golden Age’ of illustration at the end of the 19th century and the beginning of the 20th, so much so that the other Western artists such as Charles Russell and Charles Schreyvogel were known during Remington’s life as members of the ‘School of Remington” (Samuels, ix). This is the second in Roosevelt’s series of four books on ranching and hunting.
