Very Good. This is part of The Old West serieis. This book is in very good condition. The binding is tight and pages are clean. It appears to have had little use. The leatherlike tooled cover has minor bumps and scuffs.
Very good. No dust jacket as issued. At first I thought endpapers were stain spotted but on closer examination it looks like it was made to look like old parchment. Book, covers and pages are clean, undamaged, unmarked with secure binding. Plush soft...
This book, "The Cowboys" is one of a series from the "Old West" Time Life series. It has many great factual stories in it, but it is more of a history book than anything. It has a great many wonderful pictures of actual cowboys--not what you would expect--and it has many great paintings by Remington and Russell. It debunks many of the ideas of what the cowboy was like, and it paints many vivid pictures of the real cattle towns; such as Abilene, Caldwell, Newton, and Dodge City. It tells of the songs of those days, the night life, the riders on night duty, the hardships of the trails, the problems with those that try to steal the herds one way or another. When you have finished reading this book, you will feel, as I did, that you were there. The book is well worth the time it takes to read.
