  • Quotes

    • Gil Favor: Cows are senseless, stupid beasts. They go halfway across the continent just to be slaughtered. The trouble is, nobody ever trained 'em to go alone. It takes men to push a herd north. Men and time and sometimes pain. That's where I come in. I'm one of the men. Gil Favor, trail boss.

    • Gil Favor: On the trail to Sedalia, Missouri - day to day - you fall into the habit of tryin' to read your men, guess what makes 'em tick. But you don't make much headway. Isn't easy to figure grown-up humans who take this kind of life for thirty bucks a month and keep. So you finally give up. And you're just glad there's a breed like 'em to get the beeves to where they're goin'. I've got a good reason to be glad. My name's Gil Favor, trail boss.
