Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 3 Up-This vivid series entry is packed with information and copious illustrations that readers will want to pore over. Murdoch includes a history of cowboys; their preferred horses, saddles, and dress; cattle; and the mystique of the life style. Cowboy also acquaints readers with the gardians of the Camargue in France, South American gauchos, Spanish charros of early Mexico, the ``ringers'' of the Australian outback, along with the traditional cowboy and cowgirl of the wild American West. Detailed, captioned photographs of artifacts, weapons, and modern equipment used all over the world are taken from museums, private collections, and ranches. This offering is a rich addition to the nonfiction shelves; its brimming but never overly busy pages will fascinate youngsters.-Julie Halverstadt, Douglas Public Library District, Castle Rock, CO
