As one old cowboy put it, the only way you can be sure to kill a cowboy "is to cut off his head and hide it someplace where he can’t find it." The Canadian Cowboy celebrates this tough bunch of pioneers that ranched in the Canadian prairies. Former bronco-buster Andy Russell throws in plenty of personal anecdotes and is charmingly illustrated by western artist Don Brestler.
