  • The Search for the Right Ranch (July 14-August 22, 1876)

    …along first rate. If I wanted to inquire anything about the ranch I made a rush to the book and looked for the word I did not know.

The brush was so thick we could not get through it on horseback. It was screw-bean, which does not grow high but the limbs are long and dropping on the ground and lying there between them arrow weed was as thick as hair on a dog and higher than a man’s head. We found that we could run some…

He has commenced to run his sheep up on our range for no other reason than to scatter our cattle, but I intend to stay with him. As they say in A. T. and as long as I am here, I don’t intend to be imposed on if I can help it.

There wasn’t anything to go down and get my father, or to get me into Tucson. And she finally told Apache Joe to hitch up the chuck wagon! Well about that time the truck driver got back, so he went on down to the farm and let Dad know. And of course then they took me on into Tucson.” [Dusty Vail Ingram oral history, 1993] The Tucso…

Here we had a drunken driver who had got a scratch team, having lost his while letting them out to water… We had 4 greys and one rejoiced in the name of Bones and well it deserved it. I never saw such a specimen anywhere. Whenever we came to sand or hills Bones would begin to kick and gib, always managing to get caught in the harness, and the way he used to feel round with his hind leg fo…
