Reviews - What do customers think about Cowboy Ethics?
Cowboy Ethics Aug 8, 2008
Very accurate in terms of the "cowboy" expectations of society. Truth, honesty, taking responsibility are always on the forefront. Without those characteristics you don't get far with animals or people.
Distills the Basics Jul 12, 2008
Between Mr. Owen's words and Mr. Stoecklein's great photographs, one will find a great little book of distilled genius---for any industry. I've given this book as a gift to my children and clients alike. Most could learn from the "Cowboy Code" described---and most would thrive. If you're casting about for a young person, and if they like ponies and cowboys---get this book---and read it---the words are just as compelling as the photographs. There's a lot we could learn from the "simple" life of cowboys. Good stuff. Timeless wisdom----to be used.
A MUST READ! Jul 7, 2008
Every person needs to read this book. Personal choice and accountability. Easy. Simple. Basic.
Ethic's my Father taught me Jul 3, 2008
This is a great book to remind you the ethics your father taught you many years ago. It is a great reminder and a help to refocus what is important and an important way to live ones life. Everyone should read and give to their closest friends and family.
Cowboy Ethics Mar 25, 2008
Cowboy Ethics is a well written insight into the principles by which today's modern cowboys live. These ethics are as applicable to modern city living as they are to a life in the saddle on the range. The striking artistic photographs give the reader a sense of what ranch life consists of and add immeasurably to the text. For anyone interested in western life or interested in principles to guide their own life Cowboy Ethics is a must read.
