Cowboy book and quote

Borrowed the book OLD WEST: THE COWBOYS (Time-Life Books), by William H. Forbis. Engaging, informative, and well-written.

A good quote, on business resilience, from an old-time rancher that was wiped out in the great crash of 1873:

"I'm all right. I'll come back. I came here fifty years ago with only sixty-five cents and asthma, and I still got the asthma." (p. 56)
