Compiled by Ron Middlebrook. Cowboys have always held a special place in the hearts and imaginations of Americans. Images of riding bravely and happily into the sunset, fending off dangerous enemies, and singing around the campfire evoke a sense of pride and respect for a lifestyle nearly forgotten in this age of progress. Relive the days of the cowboys bringing the herds home in this interesting compilation of facts and music. 53 songs celebrate the life and times on the range by such noted writers as Doc Denning, Chris LeDoux, Rusty Richards, Roy Rogers Jr., and others. Their music is an actual view into their daily adventures, tribulations and entertainment. This unique publication also features articles on black cowboys, cowgirls, cowboys' Spanish ancestry, and more.
