Art of the Boot
What is it with cowboy boots that makes millions of people all over the world feel at home in a pair? With enduring allure, the boot is one of the great enigmas of modern society. Now, more than a hundred and fifty years after cowboys roped the ranges and galloped through the tall grass and sagebrush, we're simply enamored with what they wore on their feet.

Plain brown and black boots are still the mainstay of cowboy boot making, but the eye-poppin', snake-stompin', spine-chillin' designs created by individual artists are the ones that capture our hearts and imaginations.

Since the publications of The Cowboy Boot Book in 1992, the number of bootmakers across the country has nearly doubled, waiting lists have compounded, and the art of the boot has risen to mind-blowing proportions. The men and women who create our fancy footwear are both fascinating and funny. Their tales and artworks exhibited here are testament to the high-minded dedication of a down-to-earth contingent of craftspeople.

Tyler Beard and Jim Arndt have created an incredible gathering that will leave your toes twitchin' and your dogs barkin' for a new pair of boots.

Deerskins into Buckskins : 
How to Tan With Natural Materials A
 Field Guide for Hunters and Gatherers

Over 165 photos and illustrations bring you step by step from raw skin to velvety soft buckskin and then show you how to create beautiful garments and useful goods. You will also learn how to make rawhide and hide glue, tan in a wilderness setting and the best way to skin. History, humor and science make Deerskins into Buckskins not only practical, but fun!

Designed to be easily understood by the beginner yet rich with details for the experienced, this book teaches tanning as a natural process. No chemicals are needed! All the tools and materials are waiting around your home and land. While the tools are simple, having a great method is the key. This book has that method (see the following reviews).

Buckskin is durable, soft, washable and warm. A hand-made garment for people all over the world for millennia, it breathes and stretches with your body, cuts the wind and won't tear on briars. It is excellent to wear hiking, hunting or around the house. Plus you don't need to hunt. Deerskins that would otherwise go to waste are available every fall from neighbors, locals and butcher shops.
