North Dakota Flowers, Birds and Cowboys
Source: An Official Publication of North Dakota
The wild flowers of North Dakota are everywhere in endless variety and beauty, increasing in number as the summer season advances. The pasque flower, budding forth just as the snows of winter are passing; the violet, delicate and shy, in the low, shady places; the wild rose-the state floweracres of them, perfuming the air by the roadsides in June; the tiger lilies, rich in color, exclusive. aristocratic; the goldenrod of autumn, nodding stiff and stately in the breeze, like the plumes of the knights of old; the spiderwort, deep blue in color: our prairies have no more enchantingly beautiful flower, when seen sparkling with dewdrops in the early morning.
Birds, millions of them; the meadowlark-the bird optimist-with the dark crescent on his breast. heralding the coming of spring with his brave, cheery song; the robin, coming in the night, waking up the sleepy city and farmside with his rushing, joyous, rollicking matin music: the sweet. clear, liquid notes of the diffident prairie plover calling to his mate; the honk of wild geese flying in countless numbers in regular military formation, and the whirring wings of wild ducks of every variety, on their flight to their summer feeding grounds.
The prairies of North Dakota are a big world in its serene, beautiful old age. They are meditative, peaceful, unafraid; a world at rest, benign, gra
clous; a land made for homes and the carefree play and laughter of healthy, happy children.
It was in that long, wide stretch of country, in the western section of our state, that there lived. worked and played one of the most interesting. unique types of character that our country has produced in the process of pioneer development, the cowboy of the plains. He had a language all his own, rich, strong, colorful. There ran through all his talk a quaint humor blended with original deductions as to life's problems and, in addition. a simple, wholesome philosophy that was as fresh as the air he breathed and as satisfying and restful as the prairies over which he rode.
The cowboy was the man of the chaps, spurs, saddle, horse and gun. He was an easy. careless, daring rider-the best the world has known or ever will know. His work required the utmost skill and quick, ready resourcefulness. He was a master of his trade and so was his horse. There was a close. inter-dependent relation between horse and riderthey were chums. He was a man of courage, love of fair play, strength of character, hardihood, honor. His work was arduous, dangerous and-at timesexhausting, but, with it all, there was the romance of the great roundup, the long trail drive, the rodeo and the lonely night watch, as he slowly rode around the big herd bedded down for the night, while he gazed up through the clear atmosphere to the star-sprinkled heavens above him.
