Review:

Rarely does a book come along of such exceptional quality as Cowboys & the Trappings of the Old West. This was obviously a labor of love by authors William Manns and Elizabeth Clair Flood. Every aspect of the life and equipment of the old time cowboy has been painstakingly researched and documented. The book starts off with a touching foreword by the King of the Cowboys himself, Roy Rogers. This wonderful title explores the cowboys' simple cattle drive days, and his rise to icon status. The clever text filled with colorful anecdotes, follows the old time cowpoke through a fascinating jorney from ranch life to rodeo arenas, wild west show fame, and finally on to Hollywood. Individual chapters address the chronological design evolution of spurs, chaps, saddles, hats, weapons, and clothing. It is rare that a colorful picture book is combines with such superbly written text.

No matter how many times you pick up this book, you will discover more fascinating information in the fact-laden captions and text. This book is destined to become the definitive book on the subject, and an important one for and cowboy enthusiast or collector of Western Americana. -- Publisher Comments
