"Miguel wore the hatband, the crimson kerchief tiedloosely with the point draped over his chest, the stampedleather cuffs and the tan boots with the highest heels everbuilt by the cobbler craft. Also, the lower half of him wasincased in chaps the like of which had never before beenbrought into Flying U coulee. Black Angora chaps theywere; long-haired, crinkly to the very hide, with three white,diamond-shaped patches running down each leg of them,and with the leather waistband stamped elaborately to matchthe cuffs. The bands of his spurs were two inches wide andinlaid to the edge with beaten silver, and each concho wasengraved to represent a large, wild rose, with a goldencenter. A dollar laid upon the rowels would have left a fringeof prongs all around."
