She called herself Lucy Lariat because she didn’t know her real name, and because she was so good with a rope. Since her parents had been killed by Indians, she had been brought up by Ruben Rothwell, who trained Lucy and other children to steal for him. Lucy had stolen a horse from the Tracy ranch, but when she returned to steal a beautiful white horse, she saw a cougar about to attack it. She lassoed the cougar, and it clawed her leg. Thinking Lucy had saved their stock, Jim Tracy and his daughter, Diana, put her up for the night and made a-fuss of her.
