Cattleman Leonard Stiles, during his career with the legendary King Ranch and as a field inspector in the special division of the Texas Rangers, collected more than one thousand branding irons. These clever, rustic, and artistic iron signatures appear as detailed drawings, with fascinating stories of how they were designed and why, the ranches and historic cattle drives with which they were associated, and how rustlers attempted to alter their appearance.
