Representation of Life in a Cow Camp

In Charles A. Siringo, A Texas Cowboy, or, Fifteen years on the Hurricane Deck of a Spanish Pony (Chicago: Siringo and Dobson, 1886), frontispiece, Everett D. Graff Collection, Newberry Library.

The book from which this image is taken established Siringo's fame as the first cowboy autobiographer. In 1886, he gained employment with Pinkerton's National Detective Agency and worked all over the West as a Pinkerton detective, retiring to his ranch in 1907.
