Blake, Graduate Of University
Publishes Current Best-Seller

Another University of Michigan
graduate achieved success in his
chosen field recently when Forrester
Blake's book, "Riding the Mustang
Trail," was heralded as a current
best-seller. Blake graduated fromI
the University in 1933.
Blake, who was introduced by
Scribaners' as the "youngest author
in Manhattan, and probably in the
United States," had his book accepted
by this well-known publishing firm
after only four days' manuscript ex-
amination. He already has another
book nearly completed.
"Riding the Mustang Trail," a story
of the Southwest cattle country, is
an elaborated diary of a summer va-
cation trip. In 1932 Blake went with
a group of cowpunchers to the Mes-
calero Apache reservation in New
Mexico. After aiding in the round-
up of one of the few remaining bands
of wild horses, he helped drive them

400 miles across the plains country
to Felt, Oklahoma.
The background is the country in
which Blake has spent his vacations
for the past eight years, and the char-
acters, old-time cowpunchers and
ranchers, are the men with whom he
has been closely associated.
Blake was brought up in Muskogee,
Oklahoma, although his family is liv-
ing in Ann Arbor now, and he be-
came intensely interested in the
Southwest when he visited in Santa
Fe as a boy.
The desire to portray the spirit and
color of the rapidly-disappearing cow
country is not a new one, for when
Blake attended the University, he
submitted many essays on the South-
west in the Hopwood Contests three
years ago, and won several of the
awards. Last year he won a contest'
for original manuscripts in the maga-.
zine, "Trails," with a sketch, "The
Old Cow Horse."
While Blake attended the Univer-
sity, he was a member of Quadrangle
and of the-Varsity band.
