A Texas cow boy by Charles A Siringo( Book )

History of "Billy the Kid" by Charles A Siringo( Book )

17 editions published between 1920 and 2012 in English and held by 399 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Born in Texas in 1855, Siringo was a cowboy, Pinkerton detective, western writer, and Hollywood advisor until his death in 1928, and crossed the Kid's path once or twice in the Texas Panhandle and New Mexico. His account incorporates some inaccuracies but offers genuine historical nuggets such as cowboy Jim East's eyewitness account of the Kid's capture by Pat Garrett at Stinking Spring. Enormously popular at the turn of the century, Siringo single-handedly kept Billy the Kid's flame alive until the 1920s. Historian Frederick Nolan discusses the place of Siringo's account in Billy the Kid literature."--BOOK JACKET
Riata and spurs : the story of a lifetime spent in the saddle as cowboy and detective by Charles A Siringo( Book )

10 editions published between 1927 and 2012 in English and held by 384 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In his introduction to the 1927 edition of Riata and Spurs, Gifford Pinchot said that "Charlie Siringo's story of his life is one of the best, if not the very best, of all books about the Old West, when cowpunchers actually punched cows." He goes on to say that "it is worth something to be able to lay your hand on a book written by a man who is the real thing, and who tells the truth." Others might not have the same opinion about the book and some might argue about Siringo's memories of things that happened during his lifetime. But, in any event, the book is a colorful portrayal of the ins and outs of cowboys, bad men, and the one detective who took out after them. Siringo originally had references to his experiences with the Pinkerton Agency, but which objected to his statements and they do note appear in the 927 edition. There's plenty left, however, including stories about Billy the Kid, Kid Curry, Butch Cassidy, and even a mention of Will Rogers. All in all, this fascinating book will give today's readers a rare glimpse of what was once called "the Old West" and is now forever gone -- Back cover

A Texas Cow Boy (A Western Classic) : Real Life Story of a Real Cowboy by Charles A Siringo( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A Texas Cowboy" subtitled as "Fifteen Years on the Hurricane Deck of a Spanish Pony" is one of the few books which offers a true look into the life of a real cowboy and that too written by someone who had actually lived the life. Excerpt: "While ranching on the Indian Territory line, close to Caldwell, Kansas, in the winter of '82 and '83, we boys--there being nine of us--made an iron-clad rule that whoever was heard swearing or caught picking grey backs off and throwing them on the floor without first killing them, should pay a fine of ten cents for each and every offense. The proceeds to be used for buying choice literature--something that would have a tendency to raise us above the average cow-puncher..."
