School Library Journal’s Fuse#8 Best of 2016
* "...a fresh, multidimensional glimpse at those who make their home on the range."
—School Library Journal, STARRED review
* "[Real Cowboys] may well persuade readers to trade their ninja outfits for chaps, bandanas, and 10-gallon hats."
—Publishers Weekly, STARRED review
"...a lovely, quiet book about the personality traits that come in handy when the going gets tough."
"An eloquent response to anyone with a simplistic picture of the cowboy as a rough, tough working man and nothing else." —Kirkus
"Young cowpokes will appreciate the seriousness given to their passion..."
"The illustrations are vibrant, somewhat abstract, and reminiscent of a vintage children’s book. Readers will be delighted to learn about the many tasks a cowboy goes through in a day because the illustrations give a colorful portrayal of their livelihood." —School Library Connection
