  • DK Eyewitness Cowboy

    Dec 12, 2014

    Western Fan  from Tennessee, Rating:4.0

    As an adult I am always interested in the history and culture of the American West. The American cowboy had traditionally served as the centerpiece on this subject; be it myth or legend. The DK Cowboy book is very informative, educational and entertaining (as all DK Eyewitness books). This covers everything from the types of saddle to the Hollywood stereotype. Of course their are many pictures and illustrations. One interesting fact is that the cowboy is not an American invention as European, Asian and Latin American cultures have their own traditions of cowboy that dates back centuries. My reason for purchasing this book is for a reference for sketching Western scenes and subjects. Looking through this book; one may learn that that the cowboy was not a reckless drunk who shot his adversaries in the street, but a hard working individual, a team player and an American icon worthy of this title.

    Very good material and useful in daily practice. Would be a good gift for someone interested in learning some not so common writings on Zen.

    I love the cover of this book. As a child of an open adoption the braiding imagery on the cover is a wonderful representation of the blending of families that I experienced. One thing that struck me about this book is that it provides a blunt assessment of raising an adopted child, yet stays on point. Many books focus on the problems that children who are adopted go through and how to deal with them but only give what I consider lip service to the rewards or they gloss over the struggles. This book manages to discuss the problems that families can face in a respectful way. At first glance this book could seem intimidating to someone without a background in psychology, it has lots of references; the way that these references are presented however quickly dissipates those fears. All studies are explained with enough detail to make them understandable, but not so much that they become the focus of the book. This book is both for clinicians as well as laypeople interested in adoption...

    This is an excellent resource for meditation. It is nice quality and while not big print as such, it is nice size print.
