Bud & Me : The True Adventures of the Abernathy Boys

In 1909 5-year-old Temple and 9-year old Bud rode from Guthrie, OK. to Santa Fe, NM alone. In a span of 4 years, the brothers traveled the U.S. (more 12, 000 miles) by horseback, car, and motorcycle.

Their famous father, U.S. Marshall “catch-’em alive” Jack Abernathy of Oklahoma encouraged them, according to this account related by Temple Abernathy to his wife of 64 years.
