this is an amazing collection of contemporary tintypes of cowboys and cowgirls throughout north america. because of the medium, most of the subjects look like silent movie heroes (or villains) or archival photographs. probably the most fascinating part of looking through the photographs is noting the variations in dress peculiar to different regions - shape of the hat, the chaps, etc. the fact that the subjects were captured as they were is amazing. the personal narratives included are not always easy to read. but, each of them reveals a person in love with their job, the land, and their history. people who would be happy doing nothing else. less a history lesson, this book of antiquated photographic technology is a tribute to the cowboy and cowgirl as they exist today. fascinating and inspiring
