No Hollywood flim-flam or arty photographic re-creation here. Lindmier and Mount demonstrate through the use of historic photographs what actual working cowboys of the Northern Plains wore and what equipment they used from the 1870s until 1928.
These cowboys may not look like the ones in the movies, but you can bet your boots they are the real thing.
The authors researched chaps, spurs, boots, and even underwear. Chapters cover saddles and horse gear as well as wagons.
Over 120 historic photos and illustrations.
