Barry Moser is one of America's most distinguished artists and the illustrator of many books for children. He lives in Massachusetts.From School Library Journal:
Grade 7 Up—This collection of 20 stories by well-known writers features the most American of icons, the cowboy. There are tales of cattle drives, gunfights, ranching, Indians, and battling the environment. Some of the selections are excerpts from well-known novels such as Shane and The Virginian. Others are short stories by Western authors including Annie Proulx and Louis L'Amour. Actual cowboys, Nat Love and "Teddy Blue" Abbott, offer exciting accounts of their lives. A significant feature here is Moser's artwork. Twenty-two stunning black-and-white engravings offer up the true grit of their cowboy subjects and galvanize readers. Appropriately, the book ends with the words to "Home on the Range." This volume will be welcomed by literature teachers and is a choice addition for all fiction collections.—Patricia Ann Owens, Wabash Valley College, Mt. Carmel, IL
