The Cowboy. His Characteristics, Equipment, and
Category: History: U.S. Western
Author: Philip Ashton Rollins
Copyright/published Year: 2007 by Skyhorse Publishing
Although the American cowboy has long been a favorite subject
for novelists, filmmakers, and illustrators, too often the
picture they paint bears little relation to reality. Philip
Ashton Rollins, who lived in the West on and off between 1892 and
1924, set out to create a more accurate portrait of this enduring
icon. Based on what he himself witnessed, this fascinating study
discusses what exactly makes a cowboy, as well as cowboy
weaponry, clothing, saddles, and equipment; the "cowboy
character;" and a cowboy's work. In addition, Rollins describes
the history of ranching in the United States, the raising of
horses and cattle, livestock rustling, and more.
