Black Cowboys of the Old West TRUE, SENSATIONAL, AND LITTLE-KNOWN STORIES FROM HISTORY By Tricia Martineau Wagner
The word cowboy conjures up vivid images of rugged men on saddled horses - men lassoing cattle, riding bulls, or brandishing guns in a shoot-out. White men, as Hollywood remembers them. What is woefully missing from these scenes is their counterparts: the black cowboys, who made up one-fourth of the wranglers and rodeo riders. This book tells their story.
