The opening chapters of The Cowboy and the Cossack promise a look into the effects of cross cultural immersion A small group of cowboys from the United States finds themselves in eastern Russia moving a herd cattle to a village in Siberia while being escorted by a group of Russian cossacks While in transit the many differences between the two cultures makes the story interesting and the occasional points in common make the story universal The story then enters its middle half with a transition towards what I would consider to be a traditional western novel While the cross cultural theme is still present the focus shifts towards manly man games and mano y mano standoffs between men who all think of themselves as having the biggest balls in the competition Huffaker seems to delight in giving the play by play of each contest even though they become repetitive Its during this portion of the book that the chapters become watered down and if one were to skip over Chapters 11 20 the best parts of the book would be intensified and improvedThe end of the book picks up where the beginning leaves off 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 problemsOverall the first and last uarters of The Cowboy and the Cossack project to present day realities We are all human and Huffaker shows that joy sadness hardship and pleasure are very much the same in Russia as they are everywhere that humans reside The isolation associated with the 1880s setting of the book brings this point home and makes The Cowboy and the Cossack worth reading and if you like scenes that reuire cojones grande then you ll probably find the middle of book enjoyable too 35 Stars but the merit is there for 4 Stars outright

Frankly I was surprised at how much I enjoyed this read This was my first foray into the western genre and while it encompassed many of the traits one would expect from the genre such as cowboys and the herd it was truly unusual and a bit over the top I would recommend this book to any person man or woman who wants a really fantastic story with compelling well thought out characters I couldn t help but feel a bit sad when it all came to an end Also worth noting are the fantastic illustrations by Brad Holland in this edition
