Jim and 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 chores they were doing to be recorded or filmed. Yet, these men and women are no anachronism. They are part of a clear strain of the American spirit that still has health and vigor; strong…independent…feisty as ever.”
