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

    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.

    I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves.

    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...... ( 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.

    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 and a book about Indians. They are out of print though. Tree In The Trail would be a good choice too.
