"The Trail Boss"
By Steven E. Lillegard

It has been estimated that between 1866 and 1895 some ten million Longhorns wre driven north from Texas. The man responsible for the cattle and men was the trail boss. He was paid about $100 to $125 a month while the cowhands were paid $30.00 and the cooks $35.00.
