Nat Love


Welcome to our website on the story of Nat Love, please make yourselves comfortable, because the tale he is about to tell you is one of the most amazing adventures ever to be experienced by a human being.

Nat Love's story is a tale of courage, dedication and great exploits, proving that anyone who is given the chance to explore their full potential can achieve greatness.

Nat Love's story also serves as a historical record on the life of African-American cowboys, the dangers and excitement they experienced as they worked to give life to the American West.

It also serves as an example of progress influencing our own evolution, as Nat Love, a.k.a. "Deadwood Dick", and "Red River Dick" went from being  "Champion Roper of the Western Cattle Country." to being a Pullman porter for a Colorado railroad company.

This site was built to help you understand the essence of a man, who in his own words has told us better than any historian could, what it was like to be a black cowboy.  In addition to Love's story, we also profile African-American cowboys, and the Buffalo Soldiers of the U.S. Cavalry.

In order to give you a better feel for Nat Love's special brand of storytelling, we have included three key chapters from The Life and Adventures of Nat Love Better Known in the Cattle Country as "Deadwood Dick".  The inclusion of these pages from the book has been made possible by the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.  You may visit their site for the complete electronic edition of the book.

We hope you will enjoy his story as much has we have.  Read on...
