TALES OF AN OLD HORSETRADER The First Hundred Years. There are stories of animal cunning - a mare that figured out how to free a herd through an electrified fence and a sheepdog that guided a bunch of sheep by itself for four miles. There are stories of human failings - the guilt and regret Mr. Daniels felt while helplessly watching a handsome wild stallion he'd captured starve to death, and while selling horses to slaughterhouses for money to feed his family.

This is the memoir, taped and edited by his cousin, of a 108-year-old man who died in 1990. Daniels lived mostly between the Missouri and Mississippi rivers. He was born in Iowa and farmed and bred all manner of livestock, with a particular love of horses. More than a review of his life, this is an oral recounting of over half the history of America, taking in the Civil War, the persecution of the Indians, Henry Ford's first motorcar and the evolution of the United States of today.
It is a joy to sit down with an "old-timer" and listen to stories of times gone by. This is a slice of American history, a first-hand account of the beginning of the age of automobiles and the transition away from horses as major work animals to the machinery that (sadly for some) replaced them. It was a pivotal point in American history. The Indians had been forced off their lands and "progress" took over. Lee J. Daniels spent his life dealing with horses, mules, cattle, sheep and knew the horrors of the Chicago slaughter houses as well as the ins, outs and tricks of horse trading. What an exciting, long life he had. This book was truly a pleasure to read.

Around Adair, Iowa, where Mr. Danels and his family were brought up and lived a good deal of their lives, "Lee," as he was known, was just another oldtimer with yarns to spin. It was up to a cousin from California to catch the romance of his tales and convince him to commit them to tape, from which she transcribed this book. The resourceful Mr. Daniels sustained himself by a variety of agricultural pursuits, beginning at about the start of the twentieth century, when he was 18 years old. But throughout his life, he returned to trading and selling horses, sometimes for the U.S. Cavalry, sometimes for his own profit. Along the way, he reared a family and had many adventures illustrative of life in rural mid-America during the century gone by. At the time his book came out, Mr. Daniels was a hale and hearty 105 years old.
