"Cowboy Survivor"

This True West article reviews Theodore Roosevelt's cowboy experiences. An excerpt:

The chase continued almost until dawn, as Roosevelt’s horse nearly fell and struggled through a patch of quicksand. The other cowboy on night watch fortunately escaped injury when his horse died crashing into a tree in the pitch dark. Half the cattle scattered, and Roosevelt sat 40 hours in the saddle before the cattle were rounded up.
