Character description

Fictional character, described in the ballad "Utah Carroll, item B4 in Malcolm Laws's catalog of "Native American Balladry." The singer sadly tells of the death of his partner Utah Carl/Carroll. The two were guarding a herd when the herd stampeded -- straight for the boss's daughter (whom Utah apparently loved). Utah rode to her rescue, and killed the lead steer to slow the herd, but his saddle failed and he was trampled to death.
