Attack of the Seawolf by Michael Dimercurio 1556113609.

For more than a hundred years, American cowboys have made their living through the skilled use of horse and rope. Whole libraries have been devoted to the horse, but no one, until now, has written a thorough study of the origins and evolution of ranch roping—which differs from arena roping as practiced by rodeo cowboys.Author/cowboy John Erickson studies ranch roping from every angle: its origins in the Old World; old-time loops and throws; the influence of modern team roping; and the endless debate between those cowboys who rope ‘hard and fast’ and those who ‘dally.’Mixing scholarship with his working-cowboy's knowledge of the subject, Erickson tells stories of cowboys who could not resist fitting their loops on “things that ort not to be roped,” such as elk, deer, badgers, bears, and bobcats. He tells of jackrabbit roping contests, and of cowboys who roped mice, geese, hogs, wives, or a runaway milk wagon. Anyone who has ever “built a loop” or even thought about it will find this book hard to put down.

"Catch Rope, the long arm of the cowboy" is the spoonful of sugar that makes learning things pleasant to do. You'll learn the history and evolution of the basic, indispensable tool of the cowboy, how it's used today and how it was used yesterday, and the best practitioners of the craft. And every word is enjoyable reading!

John knows what he's talking about. He's been a working cowboy with many hours using (and misusing) the catch rope. He's also an accomplished scholar who has studied the science and art attached to this tool throughout history. And, he's a wordsmith who can adroitly entertain as he informs.

In short, the book is an unpretentious and straightforward presentation of a simple tool that can perform magic in the hands of a master. Well worth your time.
