3 Decline of the open range and dissolution of the Kohrs–Bielenberg Ranch (1877–1922). 4 Conrad K. Warren era (1922–1940). 5 Warren Hereford ranch (1940–1958). Con Warren wanted to sell the Grant–Kohrs portion of his ranch to the National Park Service as a historic landmark. In 1970 an agreement to sell the property to the park service was achieved with the proviso that it would be managed as a living ranch by the National Park Service. The original purchase involved 130 acres (. 3 km2) of the active Warren Hereford Ranch.

Most cowboys gave up the open trail life and were hired by private ranch owners in the West. They typically wore large hats with wide brims to protect them from the sun, boots to help them ride horses and bandanas to guard them from dust. Even though the cowboy’s role began to decline in the 1920s, Hollywood movies popularized the cowboy lifestyle with Westerns from the 1920s to the 1940s. Some wore chaps on the outsides of their trousers to protect their legs from sharp cactus needles and rocky terrain.

Rear cover notes: "Here at last is the complete and perfect book for everyone who wants to know 'all about cowboys' - a fascinating roundup of hundreds of facts of all kinds about cowboy life and lore from the days of the open range to the modern dude ranch. It tells about the cowboy's clothes, his work, his horse, his rope, his six-shooter, his 'lingo'; about roundups, cattle drives, famous 'bad men' and gunfighters, Indians and buffaloes, and life on the range. It explains the 'how' and why' of the cowboy's way of doing things, from braiding a quirt to 'busting' a bronc.
