By Kate Hoefler, Illustrated by Jonathan Bean (Houghton Mifflin Harcourt – 2016)
Cowboys are strong and tough. Cowboys ride fast horses and travel far and wide. But as they move through canyons and across prairies, quietly doing their work, cowboys are many more things, too. Real cowboys are gentle, patient, and creative as they move hundreds of cattle, make camp, and dream under the stars.
