Here are 5 things I learned reading, We Pointed Them North, By: E. C. Abbott “Teddy Blue”
1. Cowboys were afraid of two things: Decent women and no horse.
2. There was no alcohol out on the trail for months at a time. Everyone got drunk when they finally found a town though.
3. Texas to Montana is a really long way to ride a horse.
4. Men stuck together 24/7 take about a week to say everything they have to say. After that everyone gets quiet and bored.
5. Most cowboys were not religious.
