Cowboy Charlie in vol.4. We'll be rowing it in a few weeks and working on EM's Native American History pocket.

:yes: Cowboy Charlie. I'm going to be using it for Cowboys and then spinning off as well with Gold ;) I'm very excited about my gold unit, but it's still only in the planning stages.

Yes, it's OOP, but it can be found..... I've been searching for a while and recently "found" it and paid about $20 for it, I think...... (:blush: I've bought a good number of books recently, and I can't exactly remember..... I know I haven't paid more than $20 for any of my books, though, and this may be the only one I paid that much for.)

Gail Gibbons has a cowboy book (among all her other good stuff), and Betsy Lewin has the Cowgirl Kate & Cocoa series, for fun go-alongs.

Are you in NY? If you are then the library system has the book. :D

Not a FIAR book, but my boys have enjoyed this movie from our library (and part 2 ). It's a great go-along to a cowboy study.

Cowboy Charlie definitely and The Gullywasher ties in to it nicely.

Holling C Holling wrote a book about Cowboys (http://www.amazon.com/Book-Cowboys-Holling-C/dp/B0008580GI) and a book about Indians (http://www.abebooks.com/servlet/SearchResults?an=Holling+C+Holling&tn=Book+of+Indians). They are out of print though. Tree In The Trail (http://www.amazon.com/Tree-Trail-Holling-C/dp/039554534X/ref=pd_sim_b_3) would be a good choice too.

We are doing volume 4 with the girls now, and they are doing "The Gullywasher."
