He Was Singin' This Song - Revised and Updated

by Jim Bob Tinsley, Forewords by Gene Autry, Douglas B. Green and Omar Baker
In this book Jim Bob Tinsley shows the cowboys' songs to be an essential metaphor of their lives and times. He follows the image of the cowboy from the ""cow-keeper"" of colonial America, through the Civil War, the war for Texas's independence, the banditry of the Old West. He follows the image along the trail of the cattle drive, fighting Indians and rustlers, and into the saloons and dance halls with the gunfighter and gambler, and arrives finally at the hero we know from films and television.
