To the cowmen and boys of the Old Western Trail,
The meaning of words change over time, especially those which developed as slang terms. Some of the language in this book would, in today's society, be considered derogatory, and one would never find them used in a modern book. Please remember that in the late 1800s these terms were not taken the same way they would be today.
