Bil Keane, creator of the Family Circus newspaper cartoon feature, says this book is very big on humor and strong on cartoon art.The humor and cartoons deal with Jim Willoughby's favorite topics: cowboys and the West.He spins quick yearns like this: Two rough looking outlaws dashed out of the Benson Bank loaded down with bags of loot only to find their horses missing. Dang! muttered one. You can't trust anyone anymore.And he makes unique observations: A wealthy rancher out of Ruidoso is said to have several thousand dollars on him at any given time. Out West, that's what we call keeping good company.

In this study, historian Michael Allen examines the image of the rodeo cowboy and the role this image has played in popular culture over in the 20th century. He sees rodeo as a significant American folk festival and the rodeo cowboy as the surviving avatar of a nearly vanished authentic figure - the real cowboy, who embodies the skills and values of traditional western rural culture.
