Editorial Reviews

From School Library Journal

Grade 4-6-Topics covered in this book's four chapters and introduction include: "Cowboy Dress and Manner," "The Roundup," "The Trail Drive," and "Back at the Ranch." The opening paragraphs explain the history of the American cowboy, including the influence of the Mexican vaqueros, while the chapter on dress explores the importance of the different types of cowboy hats and the usefulness of long johns and bandannas, among other articles of clothing. "The Roundup" describes a typical work day, culminating with the Trail Drive, in which the trail boss, wranglers, point riders, swing riders, and others drove the cattle to "cow towns" on their way to markets in the East. This book is an acceptable introduction to cowboy life in the Old West, although it is not a standout. It provides some basic information, much of which can be found in other sources. Full-color stock photos and reproductions appear throughout.

From Booklist

Reviewed with Don Nardo's Ancient Greece.

Gr. 3-5. These books in the Daily Life series may seem ordinary on the outside but inside they are chock-full of interesting tidbits and solid information presented in a readable, straightforward manner. Background in opening chapters flows easily into the details of everyday life. Readers get a good idea of exactly how people lived and why everything that they did, ate, practiced, or wore made sense in the context of their surroundings and culture. They also learn about the kinds of traditions they followed and the kinds of hardships and challenges they faced. Bold-type words are explained in a glossary; illustrations include photos, drawings, graphs, maps, and paintings. Appendixes include footnotes and a bibliography. Excellent for reports.
