Bill Kitt - From Trail Driver To Cowboy Hall Of Fame
By D.L. 'Jack' Nicol and Amy Thompson
Bill Kitt is a biography of William Kittredge (1876-1958) and his mercurial rise from every day cowboy to one of the largest ranchers in the West. It also includes a history of the areas in Oregon, Nevada, and California where he operated; and the old methods, equipment, and jargon used in raising livestock. It's a look back into the lives of many people including Cowboy Hall of Fame and Rodeo Hall of Fame inductees, a movie star, All-American football player, Congressional Medal of Honor Ace, Hollywood stunt man, U.S. and state leaders, and the tragic death of Oregon's top three officials.
