The Chisholm Trail: Joseph McCoy's Great Gamble
- Public Lands History
- By: James E. Sherow
- Narrated by: Kirk Winkler
- Length: 13 hrs and 1 min
One hundred fifty years ago, the McCoy brothers of Springfield, Illinois, bet their fortunes on Abilene, Kansas, then just a slapdash way station. Instead of an endless horizon of prairie grasses, they saw a bustling outlet for hundreds of thousands of Texas longhorns coming up the Chisholm Trail. The Chisholm Trail follows the McCoys' vision and the effects of the Chisholm Trail from post-Civil War Texas and Kansas to the multimillion-dollar beef industry that remade the Great Plains, the American diet, and the national and international beef trade.
I rode out the trail to the end, but it was rough.
