Western Bootmaking: An American Tradition. This is a 27 hour video tutorial (14 two hour tapes on VHS) on the making of the classic western (cowboy) boot. The video closely follows the text of the author’s book, Western Bootmaking: An American Tradition, although each subject, from fitting the foot to inseaming, is covered in greater detail than is possible in a text only format. The book itself is included with the video as a study guide, along with a complete set of patterns, a resource list, a machine and tool inventory, and a measurement chart (comparing last to foot).
