Rocky Mountain Cowboys PDF ePub eBook

Books Info:

Rocky Mountain Cowboys free pdf Dylan Winter records the working cowboys as they summer pasture their cattle at 8,000 feet where the men live in log cabins miles from the nearest power plug. The programme shows the full range of cattle ranching activities, including roping, bronc-busting, droving and working with horses, cattle, mules and Blue Heeler cattle dogs. Dylan's interviews with the cowboys and their wives offer an insight into the lives of these hardy people and he outlines the history of the Pitchfork from pioneer days to the current relationships with environmentalists. The film also includes dramatic shots of some of the best, and worst, rodeo riders in the USA and the beef lots of Colorado where cattle are kept in fattening units of 100,000 head or more. In his usual style, Dylan shows how he adapted to the Spartan life of a mountain cowboy, and much of the programme is set against the splendour of the flora and scenery of the Wyoming high country.

About Dylan Winter

Dylan Winter has worked on and around farms since his late teens. He studied agricultural engineering at university. His journalistic career kicked off on Farmers Weekly and moved seamlessly to the BBC where he presented Farming Today - rising at 4.30 every morning. He is now a general jobbing freelance with a passion for all things rural. He has always been involved with horses and has undertaken a number of long distance rides including a five month, 2000 mile horse back journey along the Oregon Trail. He believes that the human brain - well his anyway - is hard wired to travel at three miles an hour. At that speed he can absorb enough of the passing world to understand and appreciate it. Anything faster and everything happens too fast. Dylan lives in a Buckinghamshire village with his wife and two children. He can often be seen riding his American Quarterhorse Mac - at three miles an hour - along the lanes and bridle ways of North Bucks. Following somewhere in their wake will be his laconic labrador. Dylan is the author of two books and has presented radio and TV programmes on everything from Britain's canal system to corrupt dentists.
