'This is more than a history of the cattle drives. This is a peek into a period of time that catches the reader's attention with the opening sentence and drives the reader to read on. Paul Wellman has written a classic in narrative form, and brings to life the men and women and the cattle of the West from Texas to Montana, and from Missouri to California' - "Denver Roundup". 'A rousing good book' - "New York Times".'Eminently readable and accurate in its survey...Paul I. Wellman is a seasoned writer, and a man born on the plains. The person who can put this book down after he begins it should not be allowed to read Western stuff at all' - Stanley Vestal, "Saturday Review of Literature". '"The Trampling Herd" is more than history. Long ago I discovered that Paul Wellman was a very exciting writer. He is exciting because he not only loves his subject but has lived it, and because, in addition, he writes with the directness, selection, and impact of a newspaper man' - Struthers Burt, Books.Cattle crossed the Rio Grande into what is now the United States as early as 1580, forty years before the Pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. In this colorful and comprehensive history of the cattle industry in the American West, Paul I. Wellman reaches back to the early sixteenth century, when the first cattle were brought from Spain to Mexico. He hits his stride in describing the great cattle drives that began after the Civil War when Texans desperately needed to expand their markets. Hell-bent cow towns like Abilene and Dodge City make a big noise again, and so do figures of different bents: Joseph C. McCoy, Charles Goodnight, Oliver Loving, John Chisum, Wyatt Earp, Doc Holliday, Wild Bill Hickok, and Billy the Kid. The coming of barbed wire and the great blizzards of 1886 and 1887 brought about dramatic changes in the cattle industry - all chronicled down to 1939, when "The Trampling Herd" was first published.

In the developing world, more than 100 million agricultural families make their living from land they do not own, working as tenant farmers or as agricultural labourers on large farms or plantations. This book examines issues related to land tenure and the prospects for land reform in a variety of settings, ranging from agriculture-based Third World economies to the centrally planned systems of the Soviet Union, Eastern Europe and China. The authors analyze both successes and failures in land reform and consider the economic, social and political effects of current ownership patterns. They also recommend new policies designed to enhance the prospects for development that can be sustained at the grassroots level. The resulting comparative study includes detailed analyses of land tenure patterns and problems in the Philippines, India, Bangladesh, China, Central America, Mexico, Brazil, the Soviet Union, Poland, Hungary, Zimbabwe and South Africa.
