Philip Ashton Rollins's remarkable book is perhaps the most accurate and detailed description of the real-life American cowboy ever written. Here he describes the beginnings of ranching in America, and how horses and cattle were raised. He details, with flair and expertise, everything about the cowboy and his work -- his tools and weapons, his clothes and tack, the specialized skills he perfected, and the life he led while on the range. He explains that there was really no typical American cowboy and definitively separates fact from legend. A wonderful resource for anybody who lives or loves the cowboy life, this book is an incredible record of these men, their lives, and their work. - Back cover.
