Editorial Reviews

Review

The Last Cowboys isn't just about winning saddle bronc titles...It's about the Old West becoming new.

-- " Associated Press"

A beautiful book, threading deep reporting into a gorgeously written narrative. It is American portraiture at its best.

-- "Susan Orlean, New York Times bestselling author"

A dramatic and personal account of the Wright family and how they developed a second business in the modern rodeo circuit to support their family ranch at Smith Mesa. Recommended for understanding twenty-first-century American cowboy culture.

-- "Library Journal"

A real-life story that's not only compelling, but oddly reassuring.

-- "Los Angeles Review of Books"

A tribute to the things that matter.

-- "Deseret News"

An excellent, compassionate book.

-- "Minneapolis Star-Tribune"

Avoid[s] country cliches and reveal[s] not only why rural Americans must adapt, but also the reasons they might want to.

-- " Outside magazine"

Branch has composed a wonderful ballad of intrepid Old West men bucking a modern world that's going dry fast.

-- "Nicholas Dawidoff, author of The Fly Swatter"

Branch's fly-on-the-wall reporting and evocative prose renders this a memorable tale of family and the American West in a state of flux.

-- "Publishers Weekly"

Compelling...The Last Cowboys is an excellent, compassionate book.

-- " Minneapolis StarTribune" --This text refers to the audioCD edition.
