This book by photographer David R. Stoecklein brings into focus a few of the most important elements of cowboy gear-boots, spurs, and buckles. The quality and superb craftsmanship of some of these exquisite pieces shine through in these images. In these pages you will find spurs from all across the West, handcrafted belt buckles, and weathered cowboy boots. There is a story behind each one that speaks of the tradition and rich heritage of cowboy life. Learn about the different styles and varieties of Western gear that have emerged throughout the decades in different regions of the country. The set of three books is the perfect gift for a collector or Western enthusiast. Cowboy boots are an undying symbol of the American West. The supple, weathered leather speaks of the hard work and long, dusty days of the true cowboy. Boots take on a certain personality as they age and are often the most well-worn and personalized item a cowboy owns. Styles, colours, and usage vary widely across different areas and cultures. Each pair of boots tells a different story in this new book of photographs.
