Product Description

el Buckaroo immortalizes the California vaquero and buckaroo life and their horse handling, working cattle, and fancy roping as it existed at the turn of the twentieth century.

There are over 400 color and black-and-white illustrations and historic photographs, which, together with many personal interviews and biographies, bring to life the remarkable ways of the buckaroo.

There are brief histories of many old-time and contemporary top-hand buckaroos like Granville Martin, Gilbert Aguirre, Tom Arano, Chino Boranda, and Bill Dorrance; buckaroo artists like Ed Borein, Joe Mora, Nicholas Firfires, and Jack N. Swanson; and many photographs of buckaroo gear including riatas, braided rawhide reins and romals, spurs, chinks, bosals, mecates, hobbles, and quirts, elaborately carved and decorated saddles, and silver-mounted bits.

Hard Cover with Attractive Dust Jacket.
Approx. 9″ x 12″ (236 pages) Second Printing
