Jim & Jason Eike, Bell Ranch, New Mexico, 1981. Illustrated (plate 1; frontispiece) in Jay Dusard, The North American Cowboy: A Portrait, 1983. In the forward of Jay Dusard, The North American Cowboy: A Portrait, John Nichols states that, "the folks depicted here all stopped whatever recent chrose they were doing to be recorded or filmed. Yet, these men & women are no anachronism. They are part of a clear strain of the American Spirit that still has health & vigor; strong... independent... fiesty as ever."
