"In the spring of 1907 I was the fortunate companion of the old plainsman on a trip across the desert, and a hunt in that wonderful country of yellow crags, deep canons and giant pines. I want to tell about it. I want to show the color and beauty of thos painted cliffs and the long, brown-matted bluebell-dotted aisles in the grand forests; I want to give a suggestion of the tang of the dry, coll air; and particularly I want to throw a little light upon the life and nature of that strang character and remarkable man, Buffalo Jones."
