Chapter 8, The Dude from New York Summary and Analysis

Roosevelt's trip to the Dakota territory begins at the Pyramid Park Hotel, a rough establishment with one huge room full of cots.

The two men use the Lang's cabin as their base for operations. Roosevelt hunts all day and spends all night philosophizing with the senior Lang while his son listens rapturously.
