October Editor's Pick - 100 Years, 100 Ranchers
American Cowboy's book of the month for October.
by Lauren Feldman, Associate Editor
Far more meaningful than the typical Western or cowboy coffee table book—which often has overly romanticized and idealized pictures of pretty horses and sunsets —100 Years, 100 Ranchers is a photographic recognition of the heart and soul of real ranching culture. Photographer Scott Baxter took more than ten years to complete this project, which features striking black-and-white photos of Arizona families who have been ranching since, or before, Arizona became a state in 1912. Realistic and poignant, the photographs in this book capture the beauty and historical significance of a uniquely American heritage.
