Cowboys Who Rode Proudly provides sketches of the lives of twenty-eight cowboys, or families of cowboys, who worked primarily in Texas, Oklahoma or New Mexico during the first four or five decades of the 20th century, during the transformation of the range cattle industry from free range to barb-wire. They range from lifelong camp men, to wagon bosses, to range managers, to independent ranchers and their families. The focus of the book is on the actual work of the cowboys. As far as has been possible the book covers their techniques and recounts stories illustrative of their spirit and attitudes. As participants in a long tradition, these cowboys know that the hereditary methods of handling cattle still work. This book celebrates the fact that some things don't change.

We are located in the Davis Mountains with the 800,000-acre Big Bend National Park to the south. We are a small shop located on the east side of Alpine, Texas with employees who feature personalized, friendly service. Let us help you any way we can.
