Content descriptions

Summary, etc.: As I, Tommy Williams, spent several days and nights in the far West Texas with gorgeous sunrises, clear, blue skies, warm sunsets, and beautiful starlit skies, I came to know a lot of these particular cowboys in a personal way. I found that they were very passionate about their work, their own self-imposed rules of their cowboy lifestyle, and their respect for the land and for others. They have a way of making a person feel very comfortable in a lifestyle that most of us are totally unfamiliar with. The cowboys which I met are a passing breed. The way they work cattle today dates back in history to days of old. The younger cowboys are being taught by the older ones. Tradition is being passed on from one generation to the next with great respect. There has to be a love for the land and the cowboy way of life, as they do their work for the love of it, not for the money. Times are changing in the ranching industry. As smaller ranches are being bought out by larger ones, the modern way of working cattle is often with helicopters. The dreams of the cowboys with whom I worked were to compete in a modern-day world without losing the camaraderie of cowboying." -- Back cover.
