Description
The glory days of the Old West cowboy lasted for only a couple of decades, but as this companion volume to The Gunfighters explains, during this short time the cowboy's reputation became a fundamental part of the American mythos. Bruce Wexler, British-born author of The Wild West Catalog and The Wild, Wild West of Louis L'Amour, delves deep into the cowboy's world in this visual history, with 200 archival photos, reproductions of art, and museum pieces like the Winchester Model 1873 lever-action rifle. Along with insight into the tough working conditions of the cowboy on the trail and in the bunkhouse, he looks at where cowboys came from, stories of successful cattlemen, and cowboys in popular culture.
