Books about cowboys have traditionally covered the American West in general. Here, for the first time, photographer Kurt Markus explores a particular Western region in depth: the Great Basin (or “buckaroo” country) of Nevada, Idaho, Oregon, and California.

In words and pictures recounting his travels, Markus presents his view of a world until now largely overlooked by historians and visual artists—one in which he has been involved for nearly ten years. Buckaroo is the remarkable result of that involvement.
