David Stoecklein's latest volume in his Cowboy Series showcases many different types of Western cowboy hats. A true cowboy never goes out in public without his trusty hat.The cowboy hat has practical uses of course - as a shield from the outdoor elements - but it also allows a cowboy or cowgirl to express a sense of personal style.
Today's cowboy hat has remained basically unchanged in constuction and design since the first one was created in 1865. Yet cowboy hats differ slightly from region to region and era to era. These photographs pay a lasting tribute to this vital piece of gear. This book celebrates a true iconic symbol of the American West. As the old cowboy saying goes " It's the last thing you take off and the first thing that is noticed."
