Cowboys & Indians

3 years ago Southern Literature0

My late Grandpa Amos — the farm family’s consummate dress up-and-ride-out cowboy — relished weekend trail rides and weekday reads about the Old West.

His rocking chair literature of choice: Cowboys & Indians, The Premier Magazine Of The West.

Throughout my teen up to adult years, I would journey to Albany, Georgia, to visit him, my Grandma June and their Tennessee walking horse, Diablo.

After a relaxing, nature-filled visit, Grandma would pack me some of her addictive homemade brownies; Grandpa would give me a Cowboys & Indians edition he just finished reading.

I own a few notable editions, but hold this 2012 “special collector’s issue” close to my heart since I highly respect indigenous people and appreciate their rich culture.

Even now, I kick back and re-read this particular “Best of the West” issue highlighting celebratory powwows, pearl snap shirts and bold bolo ties — Cowgirl Candace’s personal editor’s pick in every day life.
