Last of the Old-Time Cowboys

by Dearen, Patrick

$16.95

Working cowboys live on as genuine legends who rode through a golden moment in American history, In the 1980s historian/author Patrick Dearen went looking for the last of these fading icons.The trail took him to dozens of onetime cowhands in their 80s, 90s and even 100s whose aged eyes lit up and voices seemed young again as they spoke of their experiences on the trail. From these honest-to-goodness cowhands he collected priceless, spellbinding true stories of the incredible hardships of braving the elements, dealing with stampedes and runaways, and good-natured hoorawing with their companions.

These stories bear the unmistakable brand of an Old West that is now but a dusty grave on a long-lost trail. Dearen chronicles the tales and introduces the cowboys who tell them, with tender respect and love.
