Reviews - What do customers think about Eyewitness: Cowboy (Eyewitness Books)?

Disappointing  May 22, 2007
It gives some of the basic facts about the western cowboy though the cover and overall presentation is misleading. While the American cowboy remains at the center of the book, enough coverage is given to international cattlemen to technically make this book about cow herders of the world, and not about American cowboys per se.

Had we wanted a book on cow herders of the world, we would have looked for one, but of course, we were looking for a book on American cowboys.

Add to this the problem of the DK staff editorializing the book with many unnecessary opinions, and the book was very disappointing indeed. (Opinions on women being "condemned" to wear skirts, legal guns making the west more dangerous, and the oddest statement I've ever read, that cowboys wore their boots in the fashion that they did because of how proud they were of their small feet?. . . )

Odd statements, and unnecessary and controversial statements aside, the book was worth keeping, though I wouldn not recommend it.
 
The best cowboy book ever!!!!!!!!!  Apr 8, 2002
I like this book on Cowboy (Eyewitness Books) & I think it's a cool book & in this book you can see why what an athentic chuckwagon looks like, how an expert ropes a calf, a rodeo rider in action on a wild steer, how a saddle is made & a Mongolian lassoing a wild horse.

Also learn about where wild horses and bulls live in France, why cowboys wear Long Johns, how to tame a bucking bronco, why a gaucho decorates his belt with silver coins.

You can always discover how the cowboy's romantic image influenced music & films & even much, much more ever!!!!

This book reminds me of a video called "Big Comfy Couch: You Can Do it Molly, Black Beauty book illustrated by Susan Jeffers.

This is the best cowboy book ever!!!!!!!!!!!

This is like a new favorite of eyewitness books ever!!!!

I loved this book!!!!!!!!!!!

 
Yee-haw for your eyes  Jan 29, 2001
DK eyewitness books are some of the greatest non-fiction books around. The distinctive white background and high-quality photography gives this book an edge over any other cowboy picture book. And -- these pictures are real! They're beautiful photos of historically cowboy/cowgirl things, accompanied by informative captions and text.

Learn about American cowboys in the old west (along with cowboys from a few other cultures). See photos of real cowboy paraphernelia, clothing, weapons, etc.!

If you know someone (young or old) who is fascinated by all things cowboy, then you must introduce them to this book! It's a visual crash course in cowboys, and it's excellent!
