The cowboy life brought him many experiences. Some were challenging. Like overcoming fights and being captured by a Native American tribe. Many other experiences were full of joyful times.
It was also during these years that Nat met the woman whom he would call his love. After living the cowboy life for eighteen years, Nat decided to settle down towards the late 19th century. He married and became a Pullman porter overseeing sleeping cars in Denver.
In the early 20th century, he moved to Los Angeles, where he worked as a courier and guard for a security company. And where he published his autobiography, “Life and Adventures of Nat Love, Better Known in the Cattle Country as ‘Deadwood Dick,’ by Himself.”
Nat passed away in Los Angeles in 1921.
