The first in a two-volume survey, readers are invited to re-examine the history of the West and its art through a multi-faceted contemporary lens. More than 40 artists are included who reflect the tremendous diversity, depth, and breadth of a field steeped in history. While some follow the traditions established by Remington and Russell, others seek to break from tradition, busting myths and bringing new insights and artistic styles to the genre.

Contributors include Thomas Blackshear, a name familiar to some fantasy art and Spectrum fans; Donna Howell-Sickles, whose work we have seen before; and a host of names unfamiliar to us, but here are some of our favorites: Dan Bodelson, Tom Browning, Annie Coe, Glenn Dean, Mikel Donahue, C. Michael Dudash, G. Harvey,  Buck McCain, Robert Pummill, Jason Rich, Morgan Weistling. Filled with outstanding work, from contemporary settings to more historical pieces, this covers the entire range, so to speak. Includes several sculptors.

They come from both sides of the Mississippi and have pedigrees that range from bona fide cowboy or Native American credentials to careers in commercial illustration. The unifying theme is a common concern for and commitment to their art and the West itself. In this volume, contemporary artists are featured whose work revolves around the American Cowboy. Within these pages, many different artists, some of whom have been cowboys themselves, exhibit their rendition of the wonderful world of the West.
