Richard Baxter Townshend

Richard Baxter Townshend prowled the eastern Rockies and Upper Arkansas for five years before starting a cattle ranch near present-day Colorado Springs. When he recognized the oncoming threat of the homesteader to his way of life, he sold his land and returned to England, where he settled at Wadham College. There he spent his days playing golf and tennis, practicing his shooting, and fascinating his countrymen with the stories found in this volume.
