Native Cowboy Life
Throughout the world, the image of the cowboy is an instantly recognized symbol of the North American West. This lavishly illustrated book tells the story of some of the first cowboys – the Native peoples of the Plains and Plateau.
Challenging myths about a peaceful west and prairie exceptionalism, the book explores the substance of prairie legal history and the degree to which the region's mentality is rooted in the historical experience of distinctive prairie peoples.
