This is cowboy Nat Love. Nat was born a slave in Tennessee in 1854 and, after emancipation, became a cowboy on the Duval Ranch in the Texas Panhandle. During his eventful life he met Bat Masterson, Billy the Kid, Sheriff Pat Garrett, and others. He wrote a memoir titled "The Life and Adventures of Nat Love: Better Known in the Cattle Country as "Deadwood Dick" by Himself; A True History of Slavery Days, Life on the Great Cattle Ranges and on the Plains of the "Wild and Woolly" West, Based on Facts, and Personal Experiences of the Author."

 

How is THAT for a title?

You can read Nat Love's autobiography here:

It is outstanding reading.

Beauty is only skin deep but Texas is to the bone.
