Bud & Me: The True Adventures of the Abernathy Boys

$19.95

True story of a pair of adventurous boys
from Oklahoma in the early 1900s.

Author: Alta Abernathy
162 pages, Hardcover book.

In 1909, five year old Temple and his nine year old brother Bud, rode from Frederick, Oklahoma, to Santa Fe, New Mexico … ALONE … on horses! And that was only the beginning. This is the true story of the young brothers’ adventures across America.

“Catch-’em-Alive” Jack Abernathy, who was known for catching wolves with his hands (the wolves were big back then!), wanted his boys to experience life. This meant leaving their little town of Frederick and setting out across the great wild west of America. Their trips included a horseback journey to Santa Fe, New Mexico and back to home and another to New York City where they met President Theodore Roosevelt. They returned home in a “Brush” automobile (we have the exact model on display in our lobby every fall for our field education trips!)

This is a great book for all ages and a classic piece of Oklahoma history.

Written by Alta Abernathy.  162 pages. Hardcover book.
