Connor left his mom and house to travel to Abilene in Kansas to catch and sell cattle. He got a horse before he left.
I will give you three dollars for the cow.
Conner made it to Abilene after riding for one month. He met another guy named Jack who showed him around the town.
Get away from me!
Jack and Conner traveled to open range in an attempt to catch longhorn cattle. Jack told Conner that cowboys ride up to 15 hours a day.
I have brought money!
Conner brought the cattle back into town, and sold it for three dollars.
Connor was greedy and started to gamble for more money. He got into a fight with a drunk man because he tried to steal his money. Connor broke his leg during the fight.
Jack didn't want to see Connor after he got into the fight, so Connor decided to go home to his mom. It took him two months to travel because of his broken leg. Connor sold his horse to another family after returning home.
