From [cf2]A[cf1] for Andalusia, Spain, where cowboy culture began to [cf2]Z[cf1] for Zane Grey, author of many Western novels, this alphabet book is filled with lengthy sidebars of facts and elegant illustrations of cowboys and their lifestyle. Unfortunately, each letter also has a weak verse that usually scans and rhymes poorly. A glossary of Spanish words from which English cowboy-related words are derived is included.
