Ranch Life and the Hunting-Trail

Ranch Life and the Hunting-Trail. From 1884-1886, Teddy Roosevelt records the joyous experiences on his ranch in the Dakota Territories. Includes over ninety unique illustrations by Frederic Remington.

From the site:

After the death of his first wife, Roosevelt set off to the frontier, eventually settling his own ranch in the Dakota Territory. Covering the years of 1884–1886, Roosevelt records, with obvious joy, his experiences on the ranch, from the people (and animals) that he meets, his adventures on the hunt, the excitement of the round up, to the everyday life on the ranch.
