(Lawrence Clayton, Jim Hoy, and Jerald Underwood). This comparative look at vaqueros, cowboys, and buckaroos brings the American cowboy into focus and honors the regional and national variations. A short history of the arrival of stock begins the text. The following section on Vaqueros, then Cowboys, and finally Buckaroos all have rich text about what is similar and what is different about each segment of working with livestock, and the tools used. 133 illustrations throughout the book accompany the text to visually explain dress, speech, and equipment. The glossary of terms and the bibliography are well researched and extensive. Softcover, 6"x 9", 274 pages.
