The Golden Age Of The Canadian Cowboy
An Illustrated HistoryBook - 1995
A lavishly illustrated tribute to the heritage of the Canadian cowboy and his adventures on the Western frontier, The Golden Age of the Canadian Cowboy celebrates the irresistible spirit of the Old West and its inhabitants.
Hugh Dempsey relates the history of prairie ranch life and provides colourful accounts of roundups, stampedes, blizzards, clashes with wolves and grizzly bears, and the losing battle against barbed wire, which ultimately put an end to the free range. Outstanding cowboys, women ranchers, gunfighters and outlaws, horse thieves, and cattle rustlers are all part of the huge cast of characters whose stories make up this collection.
Filled with history, stories, archival photographs, and personal accounts, The Golden Age of the Canadian Cowboy is a classic in Canadian cowboy literature.
