Gathering Remnants: A Tribute to the Working Cowboy

Overview

The cowboy and his environment are among the most evocative, enigmatic, and surprisingly romantic icons of the American experience. Though considered an anachronistic occupation, the cowboy survives, and contemporary cowboy life is masterfully revealed in this new book of large-format duotone photographs. The apparent isolation of life on the range is balanced by the pride the cowboys exude in their work, and in the tightly bound communities in which they live and operate.

Overview

The cowboy and his environment are among the most evocative, enigmatic, and surprisingly romantic icons of the American experience. Though considered an anachronistic occupation, the cowboy survives, and contemporary cowboy life is masterfully revealed in this new book of large-format duotone photographs. The apparent isolation of life on the range is balanced by the pride the cowboys exude in their work, and in the tightly bound communities in which they live and operate.

Gathering Remnants presents a world ruled by tradition and a strong ingrained work ethic, which fires our imagination and connects us to our own primal needs for rugged individualism. What makes this book unique is the photographer's ability to capture the authenticity and solidarity of the cowboy's world—vast, flat rangeland that is striking in its subtle beauty.

"Gathering Remnants is a sumptuous book, unabashedly romantic: cowboy as archetype. A spiritual tome, a prayer to a way of life we need to believe in as we stumble through our own, over-scheduled lives."—Teresa Jordan, author of Riding the White Horse Home: A Western Family Album

Editorial Reviews

From Barnes & Noble
This oversize book offers a rare and enlightening glimpse into a legendary, highly romanticized world -- the realm of the cowboy. Forget the image of the hard-boiled, gunslinging tough guy, for in this pictorial essay, readers discover the hardworking men and women who use their instincts and skills to eke out a living between the vast sky and parched earth of the American West. Gathering Remnants features fine black-and-white photographs by Kendall Nelson, who is committed to documenting subjects that are undergoing intensive change, such as the cowboys. Dust, scrubby vegetation, massive clouds, and other resonant details imbue Nelson's images with the rough texture of cowboy life. Felicitas Funke-Riehle, an author whose primary focus is the American West, provides the text in the form of brief, poetic passages -- each referring to one of Nelson's photographs -- that illuminate the cultural and spiritual dimensions of the cowboys. The beautiful introduction, written by the prolific nature and travel writer Gretel Ehrlich, portrays the rituals of the cowboys, from dawn to dusk, season to season. Gathering Remnants is a vital record of this unique and evolving world in which people, animals, and the elements have struck a complicated balance.

    A beautiful tribute to the American west - you'll love it!

    If you have any interest in cowboys or the American west, you'll love this book. The stunning photographs and elegent text tell the story of a simple, rugged lifestyle that is, sadly, disappearing all too quickly from our national landscape. You'll want to keep this one handy to look at again and again. And it makes a great gift!
