One of the most visually spectacular books on the old west I have read. Each and every photograph is of the highest quality, none are equal! You can almost smell the aroma of freshly tanned leather as you page though this story of old west leather work. Reading this book takes you back to the days when all men carried a sixshooter on their hips and gun fights in the town square settled disputes. Also explained in detail the evolution of gun leather and how functional it became, along with how it became a work of art a owner could wear with pride, most certanly also a statis symbol. A book not only a old west buff would enjoy but anyone with a love of leather work and its artistry.
