50 Good Reasons to be a Cowboy
by Texas Bix Bender
Gibbs Smith, Publisher
ISBN 0-87905-655-X
Published January 2001 - Paperback - 112 pages - $6.95

Now that I live in the Southwest, I see more "cowboys" than ever before.  Some are real cowboys, others are wannabees.  The Stetson is the usual giveaway.  This book offers 50 reasons to be a cowboy as well as 50 reasons not to be a cowboy.  You read the book one way, turn it upside down, and read it again.  It's a lighthearted look at being a cowboy (if you've been a cowboy once in your life, it will forever define who you are), along with humorous comic illustrations.  Here are a few "to be" reasons: You get to grow your own steak.  Or, Your work is the pleasure of ridin' and ropin'.  However, there are always two sides to a coin, so here are a couple of "not to be" reasons: You'll be bowlegged as a barrel hoop.  Or, Being a cowboy ages you faster'n a tanning bed.  This is my favorite "not to be" reason": You have to endure the heartbreak of hat hair.  The illustrations are humorous.
Conclusion - Nice, light readin' and smilin'.
