From Booklist:

The perfect guide to contemporary cowboy culture for all of those buckaroo wanna-bes and weekend ranchers. From the different types of saddles, spurs, and boots to what type of cowboy picks out what type of hat, Morris has included interesting basic information on all aspects of ranch life. Prudent "cowboy wisdom" is included at the end of each chapter (e.g., "Don't squat with your spurs on"), as well as basic western rules ("chuck wagon etiquette") and essential vocabulary ("cowboy talk" and "Spanish roots"). Chapters include history and explanations for such topics as why Cookie is the most important person on the roundup, and Morris even includes such standard roundup and ranch recipes as sourdough biscuits and son-of-a-bitch stew. A fun and educational guide that should be popular given today's renewed interest in the Wild West. Caroline Paulison
