The mere mention of it brings to mind images of boots and saddles, horses and cattle, and being in the great outdoors. This much is true, cowboy stories never cease to hold our attention, and The Vanishing Cowboy is an especially captivating narrative. Weaving a historical text with contemporary photographs taken on location at some of the largest and last-remaining working ranches in the United States, The Vanishing Cowboy is an informative and appealing look at one of Americas most iconic figures. But for all his popularity, has the cowboys time passed? Threatened by urbanization and industrialization, will this folk hero endure the test of time, or is he headed for the sunset?
