Frank M. King, cowboy, ranchman, editor, and author, was born in Los Angeles in 1863. King, who was one-quarter Cherokee Indian, went to Texas with his family in 1873, then to Indian Territory. He returned to Texas in 1876, engaging in cattle driving there, and moved to New Mexico in 1879. King’s formal education was extremely limited. He attended a school for two years in El Monte, California in 1880 and 1881 after which he returned to cattle driving in New Mexico and later ran a ranch in Phoenix, Arizona with his brother Sam King. King finally settled with his wife Sophie Klos King in Los Angeles where he served as the Associate Editor for theWestern Livestock Journal, wrote a column entitled “Mavericks,” and wrote books about western folklore and the cattle industry.
