A" NEW YORK TIMES BOOK REVIEW" EDITORS' CHOICE
"Cowboys Full" traces the story of poker from its roots in China, the Middle East, and Europe, through the back rooms of saloons and the parlors of U.S. presidents to its evolution as a global phenomenon. It describes how early Americans took a French parlor game and turned it into a national craze by the time of the Civil War. It explains how poker, once dominated by cardsharps, is now the most popular card game in Europe, East Asia, Australia, South America, and cyberspace, as well as on television. Along the way, James McManus examines the game's remarkable hold on American culture, seen in everything from Frederic Remington's paintings to countless poker novels, movies, and plays. "Cowboys Full "is raucous and fascinating, a lively, definitive history of the game that, more than any other, explains who we are and how we operate.
