However, the only reason this gets 4 stars instead of 5 is because many of the sayings won't make sense to much of this book's audience. Even as one who's lived his whole life in the west and was raised on cowboy lore, sometimes the lingo is too idiosyncratic for an outsider looking in to parse. I found a number of thought-provoking or funny quips in here that fell flat when retold as I was met with blank stares until I explained the meaning.
Bottom line, a fun book for anyone who speaks a little cowboy.

The real world of cowboys was, of course, quite different to that depicted by John Ford and Clint Eastwood. Many were Spanish speaking Vaqueros and as many as 25% of all cowboys in Texas were of African-American ancestry. There were also Hawaiian cowboys. There were also cowboys in Australia and South America but this book is focused on the American version.
Don't Squat with your Spurs On is sound advice for obvious reasons. Other life hacks such as "any cowboy worth his salt has a rope hand that itches clean up to his shoulder bone" however, are more difficult to relate to the modern world.
This book is a short read but, when finished, there is a flickerbook image of a buckaroo in the top right hand corner of the page that will keep any cowboy entertained for hours while waiting for their beans to boil on the campfire.
