But when it comes right down to it, for me at least, a good epigraph can make all the difference. I don’t remember where, or even exactly when, I first came across Clair Huffaker’s novel The Cowboy and the Cossack.

The cowboys and the cossacks are on the move again and that movement brings them in contact with hardships that . We get a complete study of credo from Claire Huffaker's western masterpiece The Cowboy and the Cossack.

The cowboys and the cossacks are on the move again and that movement brings them in contact with hardships that must be dealt with. Its during this portion of the book that human suffering is proven to be universal and it is also shown that cultural differences can be a vast source of strength when dealing with common problems. Overall, the first and last quarters of The Cowboy and the Cossack project to present-day realities.

For samantha clair, who is a cossack in los angeles. For ivan igorovitch, who is a cowboy in leningrad. And for a lady named big red, who is everything, everywhere.

All the men in the book are brave but the leaders of the two groups, the cowboys and the cossacks are not only brave they can look in your soul and see what to say to make you feel better about your self

All the men in the book are brave but the leaders of the two groups, the cowboys and the cossacks are not only brave they can look in your soul and see what to say to make you feel better about your self. Shad, the cowboy leader and Roston, the cossack leader are an example of what all leaders should be. The book will make you happy and make you sad. I will make you smile and make you cry.

The plot is exciting and the relationships between the characters are moving. This one belongs on a bookshelf right next to "Lonesome Dove" and, coming from me, that is high praise. If you don't care for "Westerns", try it anyway (neither of the two women who recommended it to me like "Westerns" either, but they both loved this novel).

The Cowboy and the Cossack (Nancy Pearl's Book Lust Rediscoveries). Now he wanted to be peaceable, never to see the inside of a jailhouse again. But Taw was marked for violence-by his fellow men, his brother, and the sheriff. So Taw agreed to go along with a daring holdup scheme, even though he'd been warned by his brother's wife: "You're the man they'll put the blame on!"

I’d jumped up and was jerking on my second boot when a voice yelled out from the other side of the herd, Wolves! A million of ’em!. The watch had changed and it was Slim’s voice e herd!. He’d gotten up early and was already dressed and saddled. He jumped aboard Red and tore off toward where there was now more scattered firing, and that section of the herd was starting to mill around in wild panic, the other cows quickly picking up the feeling of fear.

On a cold spring day in 1880, fifteen American cowboys sail into Vladivostock with a herd of 500 acttle for delivery to a famine stricken town deep in Siberia. Assigned to accompany them is a band of Cossacks, Russiaâ?s elite horsemen and warriors. From the first day, distrust between the two groups disrupts the cattle drive. But as they overcome hardships and trials along the trail, a deep understanding and mutual respect develops between the men in both groups.

I was not a cowboy genre reader, when I started this book.

I bought this book because it was a Nancy Pearl's Book Lust Rediscoveries recommends.

When I started reading this I didn't realize the author was a legendary western screenwriter - Comancheros, Hellfighters, and War Wagon and wrote for TV western series such as Bonanza, The Rifleman, The Virginian - some of my husband’s favourites (movies and TV shows).

By page 70 I was hooked. Some scenes - when characters suffered - brought me to tears. Rostov, Levi and Shad were my favourites, but all of the characters were very well developed. They were also strong, gruff, rough and tumbled, but I wouldn't have it any other way. The book emphasized loyalty and friendship and doing what’s right - but not in a cheesy way.

The ending - the ending - happy and sad at the same time and had me crying.

This book surprised me.

Westerns are my first love, and this one really was a pleasure to read!

"Lonesome Dove" is the ultimate cattle drive story, but this one ranks right up there for engaging characters, sheer adventure, and heartbreaking turns of luck for the mixed group of Montana cowboys and Russian Cossacks trying to get 500 longhorns across the amazing Siberian landscape. Along the way the two leaders, Shad and Rostov, demonstrate the better parts of mature manhood to the men of their respective groups. To give away any of the plot would deprive the reader of much pleasure, so I will only say that these cowboys and Cossacks could ride shoulder to shoulder with Gus and Captain Call and the rest of the Hat Creek outfit and be right at home around the campfire.

This Nancy Pearl Book Lust Rediscovery lives up to the glowing recommendations of a couple of my friends, and I am glad that I read it.

In my humble way I do not have the words or ability to describe how much I enjoyed this reading. I got it on kindle. If it is not the best book I have ever read it is very close and I have read a lot of them. Sometimes I do not want to put a book down but with this one I just wanted to start reading it all over again. Others have written what it is about so I won't go there much.

To me it is a book about honor, loyalty, friendship, doing what is right regardless of the cost. All the men in the book are brave but the leaders of the two groups, the cowboys and the cossacks are not only brave they can look in your soul and see what to say to make you feel better about your self. Shad, the cowboy leader and Roston, the cossack leader are an example of what all leaders should be.

The book will make you happy and make you sad. I will make you smile and make you cry. It is one of the most touching, moving books I have read. And to think it is listed as a western. Yes, there are cows involved and a herd to be moved but it is across Russia and there are groups to be fought along the way, the worst are the mighty Tartars. They are feared by all. I will not go into that out come. You will have to read the book to see. Please, if you like any kind of books I think you will like this one. It touched me greatly. Thank you Clair Huffaker.

When I ordered this book, I was intrigued by the premise -- Old West cowboys driving a herd of longhorns across Siberia? Accompanied by Cossacks? Preposterous! As an avid and prolific reader, I couldn't understand how this had escaped my attention. Once it had arrived, I started right in - and found that it was spellbinding in every way. The characters were well developed, the hostility and mistrust born of cultural and language differences was completely valid, not overplayed, and the way in which the two groups became one by facing challenges together was compelling. The use of cowboy vernacular could have been cheesy but to my reading simply added to the authenticity of the tale. Several individual human interest stories were embedded within the main story. I loved the developing bond between the two leaders as they discovered their common leadership style and commitment to their men, yet remained austere in their relationship; there was a poignant coming of age story of both a young American and his Cossack counterpart; and an unexpected sensitive and poetic core of a gruff, diehard cowboy. All in all this was a wonderful story that I would love to read again -- after I get it back from the friend I loaned it to - and then she loaned it to someone else... (I may have to buy a new copy for myself!)

Drop 500 cattle and a couple dozen cowhands in Russian in the late 1800's and watch the fireworks. When Shad, Levi, and the rest meet up with Col. Rostov his free Cossacks, all hell breaks lose as the Tsar's Imperial Cossacks, unfriendly port authorities, and savage Tartars try to stop them from reaching Bakaskaya in Siberia. First read this forty years ago and recently found it as a Kindle book. It's the best $5 you'll ever spend on a western.

As a long time western and historical novelist, I have always looked up to Mr. Huffaker's wonderful gift for storytelling. Just yesterday I finished re-reading THE COWBOY and the COSSACK and once again I was awed by both is research and his gift for creating characters that stay in your mind for years. Rostov, Levi and Shad were the main ones but the others also stand out...every one of them as a strong individual that had great quirks and personalities. I just love this novel and I wonder if it was made into a movie...and if not, why not.

This work transcends the genre of "western" just as my late friend, Elmer Keelsons works have done. What a memorable, epic story!
