In the year 1888, at age 84, Lorenzo Dow Langford was leading his mare through the barnyard with a sack of corn on his shoulder when the horse snatched her head back and knocked him down. Sore and unable to be of much help in the field anymore--"it was three or four months before I could crawl from the bed to the fireplace"-- Langford sat down to write about his life as a Methodist circuit rider, a preacher on horseback working the settlements on the Mississippi frontier.
