GROWING UP TO COWBOY; A Memoir of the American West

Santa Fe, NM: Sunstone Press, 2002. First edition. Hardcover. 6 x 9, 390 pgs, b&w historical photos. The author grew up in the cowboy life style of the 1930s and 40s, spending summers with two old-time cowboy uncles in various locations around Colorado. During this time, in the settings of no vehicles, staying in some pretty crude cow camps, he learned some of life's valuable lessons. After graduating from high school in 1948, he worked in the rugged cow country of northern New Mexico where, as a teenager, he hired out as a cowboy for some of the big ranches in the area. His story gives good insights into what it was like being a cowboy before the advent of four-wheel drive pickups and horse trailers and later when it was important to adapt to modern day technology.
