About The Little Book of Cowboy Law

Even if you have never worn a pair of spurs, the sight of a lone cowboy galloping across the ragged range at sunset, dust flying in his wake, is an extremely evocative one. Cowboy culture developed during the United States' westward expansion as a unique and old-fashioned blend of individualism, personal integrity, and strong work ethic. And even in this modern-day world of pickup trucks equipped with cell phones, GPS, and satellite radio, the traditions and mores remain largely intact.

But even with the freedom and relative lawlessness we associate with them, the cowboy--like the rest of society--was never far from the courthouse, and the book you have before you contains some fascinating legal disputes that have made their way to the bench. Because of the diversity and complexity of this litigation, these cases have been divided into five parts:

1. The Cowboy Trade
2. Rodeo World
3. Matters of Tort
4. Criminal Concerns
5. Intellectual Property

This collection is a captivating look at the subset of American jurisprudence that illustrates the unique character of cowboy culture. It also confirms the old Wild West adage that there are really only two kinds of people in the world--those who are cowboys, and those who want to be cowboys.
