Still displays very well in new mylar showing a yellow-shirted, big western hat wearin' cowboy rustlin up a stray longhorn that is running over dirt, rocks and gullies. "Cow Country" is where cattle run loose in open territory, identified by brands and earmarks, not by names or place. There are many horses on this range, as many horses as cattle, and even some sheep. But it's always called cow country by the cowboys. There is much laughter in this book - as in the story about the "high-class foreigner" who bought a cow outfit and tried to turn it into his idea of what it should be, as in the story about a "show-hand" among the cowboys. There is an absorbing article on wild horses, and what becomes of them, and a delightful account of what happens when a cowboy marries, and much more.
