9780865343535: Growing Up To Cowboy (Softcover)

Bob Knox grew up in the cowboy life style of the 1930s and 40s, spending summers with two old-time cowboy uncles in various locations around Colorado. During this time, in the settings of no vehicles, staying in some pretty crude cow camps, he learned some of life's valuable lessons. After graduating from high school in 1948, the author worked in the rugged cow country of northern New Mexico where, as a teenager, he hired out as a cowboy for some of the big ranches in the area. His story gives good insights into what it was like being a cowboy before the advent of four-wheel drive pickups and horse trailers and later when it was important to adapt to modern day technology. Bob's book covers a wide spectrum of cowboy life--a span of sixty-four years--and his blend of humorous and historical accounts makes for fast, enjoyable reading. From one hilarious episode to another, the reader gets the feeling of what it was like, 'Growing up to Cowboy.'
