John Simpson Chisum left a trail across the American West so wide that a blind scout could follow it. Although his track can be picked up effortlessly. I was raised in the area where John Chisum started his cattle drives. I lived in the New Mexico area where Chisum ranched and now I live a few miles from his final resting place. This does not qualify me to be an expert on John S. Simpson but I have always heard Chisum stories. Although his track can be picked up effortlessly, the gaps and sketchy information about the man leave us with but half of the story. John Chisum's life story seems to have been defined by his association with Billy the Kid and a singular, epic cattle drive across the barren expanses of West Texas to New Mexico. John Simpson Chisum left a trail across the American West so wide that a blind scout could follow it.

John Simpson Chisum was born August 16, 1824, in Hardeman County, Tennessee, the second child of 16-year-old Lucinda Armstrong, who had married a cousin twice her age, surveyor and farmer Claiborne C. Chisum, 33. The Chisums of western Tennessee were descendants of the Chisholms, who had migrated from England to the American colonies in the early 1600s. Originally published in the August 2014 issue of Wild West.

John Simpson Chisum was one of the first cattlemen in New Mexico, and he was identified with the Lincoln County War of 1878-1879. A gambler, Chisum frequently played poker with John Horton Slaughter, a lawman in Texas and later the Arizona Territory.

John Simpson Chisum left a trail across the American West so wide that a blind scout could follow it. Although his track can be picked up effortlessly, the gaps and sketchy information about the man leave us with but half of the story. John Chisum's life story seems to have been defined by his association with Billy the Kid and a singular, epic cattle drive across the barren expanses of West Texas to New Mexico. Ask anyone on the street about John Chisum and they are apt to bring up The Chisholm Trail. In an unlucky twist of historical circumstance the totally unrelated Chisholm Trail which covered roughly the same path as the Kansas Trail, the Abilene Trail, or McCoy's Trail and was named for Jesse Chisholm would be forever confused with John Chisum's Western Trail.

Perhaps the noted historian Harwood P. Hinton, Jr. said it best over a half century ago when he penned ''A definitive biography of John Chisum may never be written, for there is quite a paucity of information not only concerning his life but also his stock dealings, which spanned the Southwest for thirty years.'' Not at all unlike the saga of legendary personalities of the American West such as Billy the Kid the story of the life and times of John Chisum has become ''so contaminated with hypothesis and folklore that what remains of his story is little more than a blurred picture of a misrepresented and uninterpreted individual ... living in the shadows of a bygone era.''

John Chisum did nothing in a small way. He rarely missed an opportunity to advance his own purposes. He built a cattle empire in New Mexico that was, at the time, second to none. To shamelessly borrow a line from Walter Noble Burns' book The Saga of Billy the Kid, John Chisum knew cows.

Not as clean cut as the John Wayne version of John Simpson Chisum, but still a good read. Although he had flaws and did some very bad cowboy things, I still like him. He should have been more above the board with Billy the Kid than he was, and I do believe John was a ruthless, money making rancher of New Mexico. Legends do have flaws too.

Mr. Caldwell is a gatherer of facts but is not a storyteller. It did serve my purpose as a researcher. Mr. Chisum is buried in Paris Texas where my family is from.

Not much to learn about J. Chisum

Clifford R Caldwell is a zero... His writtings are only for trying to raise questions of the long ago past in order for him to hopefully make a few $$$$. The past is gone and can not be changed. I was raised in the area where John Chisum started his cattle drives. I lived in the New Mexico area where Chisum ranched and now I live a few miles from his final resting place. This does not qualify me to be an expert on John S. Simpson but I have always heard Chisum stories. The zero writtings of Mr Caldwell do not go along the lines of things I have heard all of my life. Thank you Roy D. Haynes

A great book and an invaluable reference on John Chisum! I find myself referring back to it plenty and well worth the read! As a fellow writer, I appreciate well-researched and written accounts as this one. Not sure where the other review was going. A must on the topic!
