About the Author:

Rob Gibson, himself a musician, knows the power of song. Rob has researched the roots of the songs and the routes of the drovers, and established clear and coherent links between the Wild West and the no-less-wild Highlands. The medium of music paints a vivid picture of their social and personal lives.

Review:

The cattle trade was an international brotherhood and sisterhood whose story has now finally been explored: with humour and sensitivity.' TOM BRYAN 'bringing to the forefront Scots who were instrumental in forming the cattle kingdom of the American Wild West.' DAVID WILKIE

Book Description LUATH PRESS LTD, United Kingdom, 2011. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Illustrated, Reprint. Language: English . Brand New Book. From droving to driving, heilan coos to long horns, Highland Cowboys explores the links between the two cattle cultures of Scotland and America through music, song, dance, and folklore. The vast number of Scots who emigrated to North America, whether through forcible eviction during the Highland Clearances or voluntarily in the hope of a better life, has been well documented. With them they took their culture, their language, their music and their skills. Cattle droving in Scotland was an established profession from the 16th century, and many such migrants took cowboy jobs in the American West. The medium of music paints a vivid picture of their social and personal lives, and describes a mutual exchange as music crossed and re-crossed the Atlantic creating strong links between the old culture and the new. This unique exploration of the cowboy culture sheds new light on the everyday life of the cattle communities. Bookseller Inventory # ABS9781906307288
