Real cowboys are quiet, gentle and safe. They listen and are patient. This beautiful picture book by Kate Hoefler and Jonathan Bean shows cowboys who do the long slow work of herding cattle, and the skills they need for that, which aren’t all showmanship and galloping excitement. No, cowboys spend long hours in the saddle, taking care of the cattle, the earth, each other.
“Real cowboys are as many different colors as the earth. Real cowboys are girls, too.”
