ABOUT THIS BOOK
ABOUT THIS BOOK
   "One of the finest works to come out in recent years on cowboy songs,
        in addition to being the first good collection of the cowboy's bawdy material.
        . . . A must for anyone who is a student of cowboy music--or anyone who
        just likes the sound of dirty subject matter rhyming." -- Hal Cannon,
        Journal of Country Music
      "A brave and honest step toward increasing our understanding of
        what cowboys really sing." -- Bob Bovee, Old Time Herald
      "A thorough piece of scholarship and collectanea and a valuable,
        welcome addition to cowboy song literature." -- Keith Cunningham,
        Mid-America Folklore
      "Logsdon has written the book with a scholar's attention to detail.
        But what shows through the scholarship is the collector's enthusiasm for
        the material. . . . A superb job in a difficult area." -- Angus Kress
        Gillespie, Journal of American History
      "A major contribution to the folklore and popular culture, history,
        and social psychology of American cowboy culture." -- Kenneth S.
        Goldstein, former president, American Folklore Society
