Cowboy Wisdom: What the World can Learn from the Wit and Wisdom of the West May 10, 2007
If I were to base my impression of the West on this book I would walk away thinking that it lacked wit and possessed very little wisdom. If you're looking for "funny" cowboy sayings that you might not break out in mixed company, or something cowboy themed to put on the back of your toilet, then this is the book for you. If you're actually interested in authentic, profound or meaningful cowboy philosophy...keep looking.

Cowboy Wisdom is an awesome coffee table book! Mar 13, 2006
Cowboy Wisdom is an absolutely marvelous addition to any library, whether you are a lover of the "cowboy way" or the slendid beauty of America's heartland! The photos are spectacular and the "cowboy wisdom" is as relevant today as it was when the West was young. Kudos to the authors who put the photos and "wisdom" together to create a truly enjoyable coffee table book that readers of all ages can ponder and share for years to come.
