Black Cowboys explores a culture that has been largely written out of history, but is still thriving today all over the United States. In the photographs of Andrea Robbins and Max Becher, children will visit rodeos, trail rides, and meet many different Black Cowboys and Cowgirls. The engaging photographs will appeal to even the youngest of children, while the subject matter will encourage further thought and discussion in older readers.
