Although the American cowboy has long been a favourite and intriguing subject, too often it bears little relation to reality. Philip Ashton Rollins, who lived in the West between 1892 and 1924, set out to create a more accurate portrait based almost entirely on what he himself witnessed. This fascinating study discusses what exactly makes a cowboy and why there is no single definition for this enigmatic individual, as well as weaponry, clothing, equipment, work and the archetypal 'cowboy character'. In addition, Rollins describes the beginnings of ranching and its history in the United States, livestock rustling and much more.
