Black Trail Hands
Poems and Stories of the famous and not so famous black men who made the great cattle drives and became legends as working cowboys.  Of all cattle drives that moved north, historians believe
that one out of four trail hands
was African-American.

Men like Bose Ikard, Bill Pickett, Robert Lemmons, and Nat Love helped to make history as cowboys who just happened to be black.
