Following the end of the Civil War, the Lone Star State entered the peak era of cattle trailing. The country was hungry for beef and Texas cattlemen and women were happy to sell their supply at a premium price. As the industry grew, new trails were established to better herd this cattle through Texas and across state lines.
This month, as we celebrate the release of our latest eBook, Texas Trails: Pathways of History, ShopTSHA features our products detailing the histories of cattlemen, ranchers, and the trailing industry. Discover more about the cattle drivers who blazed trails throughout the state and across the country with your book, map, or art selection.
