George Girdler: Motorcycle Cowboy
Judging from childhood photos, my earliest career aspirations could easily be summed up in one word: cowboy. Rarely was I without my black 4X Beaver Stetson, Dan Post boots, Rodeo Champion belt buckle, and a pair of cap guns at my hip. Tooling around the LIFE archives, I came across George Silk’s photos of Mr. George Girdler, wild horse hunter of Australia. I call him The Motorcycle Cowboy.
