John Bratt was one of the first ranchers in Nebraska. An Englishman, Bratt came to America in 1864 at the age of seventeen and worked as a bullwhacker, supplying Fort Kearny and other army posts. He started his cattle business in 1870. Most of his narrative is devoted to the development of the ranching industry on the central plains. ADAMS HERD 310. SIX SCORE 13. MERRILL ARISTOCRAT.
