National Day of the Cowboy - Blogathon Day 3

Treats today on the Shotgun Bo Rivers blog:

First up is bestselling author Steven Law, speaking eloquently of his upbringing on his family's Iowa farm among working cowhands, and how those men differed from those depicted by Hollywood.

Joining him is Ken Farmer, taking us on the trail from watching Saturday matinee Westerns to researching and writing the West as it actually was, and reminding us that the best Deputy US Marshal of all time was Bass Reeves, a former slave.

Saddle up and get over there!
