Summary
""These are the cowboys." In parts of western America, where the endless expanse of land and the yet greater reach of sky are eternal, so are the men who work the range. This extraordinary book portrays a sense of these men and these places as no other has ever done. Photographer Martin Schreiber spent nearly two years documenting the life of the modern cowboy on ranches in Texas, Oklahoma, and New Mexico, but to call these photographs "documentation" is to do them a grave injustice. For there exists in these images a quality of feeling that transcends even the highest attainments of the photographer's art. Without question, what Martin Schreiber has accomplished in Last of a Breed is testament not only to his great artistic gifts, but also to the immutable life of the cowboy. It is a life that has changed little over the decades, one of the few remaining pieces of the American legend that, thankfully, are still intact"--Jacket flap
