After suffering defeat in the Civil War, a young man struggles to establish his identity and begin life anew in a raw and unsettled land. In 1866, only men uprooted by war had reason to ride into Tubacca, Arizona, a nondescript town as shattered and anonymous as the veterans drifting through it. So when Drew Rennie, newly discharged from Forrest’s Confederate scouts, arrived, leaving everything he owned behind, he knew his business would not be questioned. To anyone in Tubacca there could only be one extraordinary thing about Drew, and that he could not reveal: his family name. Drew has come west from Kentucky to find a father he had thought dead until the year before. However, kinship with a man like Hunt Rennie—the legendary Don Cazar, owner of a matchless range and prize stallions—is not a claim to be made quickly or lightly. Posing as Drew Kirby, the young veteran contrives to get himself and his friend Anse hired as corral hands at Rennie’s Range, but he is hardly prepared for the suspicion and danger that stands between him and his father. As hotheaded as the elder Rennie, Drew is ready to move on to California—until the day all proof of his name is stolen from him, and his unwarranted arrest for horse-thieving spurs the accusations of the one man whose trust he really needs. Andre Norton’s Ride Proud, Rebel! dramatically portrayed the last year of the Confederacy, when brave men met defeat with honor. In this sequel, Drew’s struggle to start over out west reflects the courage of thousands of rootless men set adrift by the Civil War.

The American cowboy has long been a popular figure in fiction, motion pictures, and studies of the West, but over the years inaccuracies have crept in, distorting the image of the real cowboy. Philip Ashton Rollins, in The Cowboy, sets out to provide a complete, accurate handbook on the everyday life of the cowboy - trailing, herding, branding, round-up, and horsebreaking. He also discusses tools of the trade, including types of saddles, bits, riatas, boots, and spurs. Most vivid is his presentation of the cowboy's personality, code, mores, and amusements. This new paperback edition, a reprint of the enlarged (1936) edition, contains revisions to the text of the first edition, a new chapter on riding "buckers, " thirty-one illustrations, and an index. In a new foreword, Richard W. Slatta discusses Rollin's life and compares modern histories of the cowboy with Rollins's classic volume.

"What would rodeo look like if we took it as a record, not of human triumph and resilience, but of human imperfection and stubbornness?” asks animal historian Susan Nance. Against the backdrop of the larger histories of ranching, cattle, horses, and the environment in the West, this book explores how the evolution of rodeo has reflected rural western beliefs and assumptions about the natural world that have led to environmental crises and served the beef empire. By unearthing behind-the-scenes stories of rodeo animals as diverse individuals, this book lays bare contradictions within rodeo and the rural West. For almost 150 years, westerners have used rodeo to symbolically reenact their struggles with animals and the land as uniformly progressive and triumphant. Nance upends that view with accounts of individual animals that reveal how diligently rodeo people have worked to make livestock into surrogates for the trials of rural life in the West and the violence in its history. Western horses and cattle were more than just props. Rodeo reclaims their lived history through compelling stories of anonymous roping steers and calves who inspired reform of the sport, such as the famed but abused bucker Steamboat, and the many broncs and bulls, famous or not, who unknowingly built an industry. Rodeo is a dangerous sport that reveals many westerners as people proudly tolerant of risk and violence, and ready to impose these values on livestock. In Rodeo: An Animal History, Nance pushes past standard histories and the sport’s publicity to show how rodeo was shot through with stubbornness and human failing as much as fortitude and community spirit.

What started as an exhibition to entertain audiences has turned into the most popular-and dangerous-event in rodeo: bull riding. When a 150-pound man attempts to ride a two-ton bull with a killer instinct, it's not a matter of whether the rider will get injured, but when, and how badly. As cowboy Jim Shoulders says, "You can't stop something like an injury from hurtin', but you can damn well not let it bother you." What motivates riders to devote themselves to this challenging sport? Find out in Austinite Gail Woerner's newest book, which covers bull riding from its beginning into the new millennium.
