The Beef Bonanza; Or, How to Get Rich on The Plains. Being a Description of Cattle-Growing, Sheep-Farming, Horse-Raising, and Dairying in the West
BRISBIN, Gen. James S.
A Union Army general during the American Civil War, Brisbin remained in the U.S. military for the rest of his life. His military career didn't stop him from writing on a wide variety of subjects, however. Besides the bestselling "The Beef Bonzana," which urges investment in Open Range Cattle, he also wrote about tree planting, stories of the plains, and bios of Ulysses S. Grant and President James A. Garfield.
