The dime novel and dude ranch, the barbecue and rodeo, the suburban ranch house and the urban cowboya€”all are a direct legacy of nineteenth-century cowboy life that still enlivens American popular culture. Yet at the same time, reports of environmental destruction or economic inefficiency have motivated calls for restricted livestock grazing on public lands or even for an end to ranching altogether. In Let the Cowboy Ride, Starrs offers a detailed and comprehensive look at one of America's most enduring institutions. Richly illustrated with more than 130 photographs and maps, the book combines the authentic detail of an insider's view (Starrs spent six years working cattle on the high desert Great Basin range) with a scholar's keen eye for objective analysis.1983), and Knowltona#39;s early essay aquot;Causes of Land Loss among the Spanish Americans in Northern New Mexico, aquot; Rockf Mounta1n Social ... 1981), a wonderfully illustrated time capsule of ranch life in Baja California. ...
