Through a combination of short essays and cowboy poetry, Ranch Dog: A Tribute to the Working Dog in the American West celebrates the integrity, personality, love of work and loyalty of the working ranch dog.

These working dogs represent many different breeds for cattle, sheep and goat herding, including the Catahoula hound, the Queensland cattle dog (heeler), the border collie, the Australian shepherd, the black mouth cur and, of course, the occasional mongrel.

When in their element, doing what they have been bred and trained to do, there are few things that can compare to the sheer joy and amazement one experiences while looking on in disbelief as these tireless dogs round up the herds.

Wonderful photographs depict the freedom, landscapes, horses, livestock and riders that share the range, and the adventurous and beautiful lifestyle, that belongs to these dogs.
