Flint Hills cowboys : tales from the tallgrass prairie by James F Hoy( Book )

3 editions published in 2006 in English and held by 197 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jim Hoy blends history, folklore, and memoir to conjure for readers the tallgrass prairies of his boyhood in a book that recalls the ranching life and the people who lived it. Here are cowboys and outlaws, rodeo stars and runaway horses, ordinary folks and the stuff of legends. Hoy introduces readers to the likes of Lou Hart, a top hand with the Crocker Brothers from 1906 to 1910, whose poetic paean to ranch life circulated orally for fifty years before seeing print. And he tracks down the legend of Bud Gillette, considered by his neighbors the world's fastest man until he fell in with an unscrupulous promoter. He even unravels the mystery of a lone grave supposed to be that of the first cowboy in the Flint Hills."--Jacket

The vanishing cowboy by Jim Bertoglio( Book )

2 editions published between 2015 and 2017 in English and held by 106 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Have you ever dreamed of being a cowboy? Who of us hasn't? The mere mention of it brings to mind images of boots and saddles, horses and cattle, and being in the great outdoors. This much is true, cowboy stories never cease to hold our attention, and "The Vanishing Cowboy" is an especially captivating narrative. Weaving a historical text with contemporary photographs taken on location at some of the largest and last-remaining working ranches in the United States, "The Vanishing Cowboy" is an informative and appealing look at one of America's most iconic figures. But for all his popularity, has the cowboy's time passed? Threatened by urbanization and industrialization, will this folk hero endure the test of time, or is he headed for the sunset?"--Back cover
