40 Years of Misery!
The Life and Times of Stephen Toll Stragnell

Life on the run was a struggle but things picked up after a few years when my brother Sandy joined me in Mexico. It was becoming increasingly difficult for us to carry all our possessions around with us. I needed a bigger wagon.

Being too young to get a proper, paying job I had to make ends meet however I could. Sometimes it was picking pockets, other times I had to resort to entertaining the rich Gringos who visited the area.

Occasionally, after a successful fishing expedition, I had enough food so that I could simply relax and not worry about what the following day might bring.
