Lockard relates the story of "his pursuit of thirty-one days of the King of Wild Horses, Black Kettle," during the early years of Western Kansas history. The horse had escaped from a raid by Black Kettle and his band of Cheyenne on a Mormon wagon train in 1867. In telling his tale, Lockard gives a history of some of the more notable Kansas hunters and early settlers he knew.
