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