As in other cases, Tex combines a type of outdoorsmanly machismo with a counter-cultural willingness to accept transgressions of convention, in this case gender-bending, and even to revel in them. Only the know-it-all professor comes oﬀ as irredeemable; even though he comes around to Tex’s view of ﬁres in teepees, he makes it out to have been his own idea—hardly a surprise in an academic. —AG 0DEO #QE@EJC #=IA 9ARNS OF THE WILDERNESS BY A COMPETENT OUTDOORSMAN By N. PRIL « AND three The Last Great Buffalo Drive Tex relates a number of past ﬁlm experiences in this story, though not the months he and his family spent in California, when he worked in Hollywood as an animal handler, notably on The Call of the Wild.
Rather than complain about it, he found a way to make them look as foolish as they were—in stories such as this one. A young Ivy Leaguer eager for a chance to shoot a grizzly declines, when they ﬁnally ﬁnd one, because he would have to cross a stream and get his feet wet, which he refuses to do. The story ends with Tex contemplating how he might even prefer the eﬀete and pointless work (at least for a mountain man) of driving a bus to guiding this sort of customer. The question of authenticity is addressed clearly here: a man who can hunt and take care of himself in the mountains is a real man.
Tex was delighted by any client’s ability to shake oﬀ city behaviour, as in the ﬁrst episode, in favour of rugged mountain masculinity, and his delight was not limited by (though it was certainly shaped by) conventions about gender. When an anxious and haughty family father turns back to town and the nearest stock ticker after a few days on the trail, his wife and four daughters turn out to be excellent mountain men, fulﬁlling all the requisites of the mountaineering hunting ethos, from pranks right down to excellent shooting.
