Andy Adams began writing at the age of 43, publishing his most successful book, The Log of a Cowboy, in 1903. His other works include A Texas Matchmaker (1904), The Outlet (1905), (1906), Reed... More > Anthony, Cowman: An Autobiography (1907), (1911), and The Ranch on the Beaver (1927). The Log of a Cowboy is an account of a five-month drive of 3,000 cattle from Brownsville, Texas, to Montana in 1882 along the Great Western Cattle Trail. Although the book is fiction, it is firmly based on Adams's own experiences on the trail, and it is considered by many to be the best account of cowboy life in literature. Adams was disgusted by the unrealistic cowboy fiction being published in his day; The Log of a Cowboy was his response. It is still in print, and even modern reviewers consider it a compelling classic. The Chicago Herald said: "As a narrative of cowboy life, Andy Adams' book is clearly the real thing. It carries its own certificate of authentic first-hand experience on every page."< Less

More > her new tradition of modern Spanish dance. To this day, “Spanish dance” means mostly folkloric or flamenco performances, and those companies which create new dance in Spain or Spanish-influenced settings are incorporated into the world of western modern dance.

From these researches, partly ethnographic, and partly proto-feminist, they created new dances, staged in dramatic ways but definitely not in the balletic conventions of their times.< Less
