      John Langmore is a former working cowboy who spent five years photographing cowboys on twelve of the country’s largest ranches for his acclaimed new book “Open Range – America’s Big Outfit Cowboy,” published by Twin Palms Publishers. In his book, Cowboy Ethics – What Wall Street Can Learn from the Code of the West, Jim Owen made a heartfelt case for a new approach to business ethics — one that goes back to simple, timeless principles like those of the cowboy code. He also translated the unwritten Code of the West into Ten Principles to Live By.

        A good book, interesting, various stories about "unseen" people who work in coal mines, at airports (flight control towers), rigs, cheerleaders, farmers (beef breeders) and cowboys and many more/5(). Book Overview Readers brought up on Hollywood westerns will have their eyes opened by this story of a working cowboy. Although he never chased a rustler or rescued a pretty girl and probably couldn't even hire on as an extra in a B-grade western, Ed Alford (or "Fat") has worked cattle most of his life.

        The book is nominally devoted to the work of Mr. Prince, who rose to fame in the s through his coy appropriation of the majestic cowboy . It's a big oversize book, with 48 black and white plates by California photographer Kendall Nelson. The rather worshipful and romantic text is by German-born writer Felicitas Funke-Riehle. Gretel Ehrlich has provided an introduction about the lonely, hard work of a cowboy, written in her own meticulous eye-for-detail style.5/5(1).
