Nat Love - A Cowboy’s Life is a graphic novel adaptation of the autobiography of Nat Love, a Black cowboy from the 1800s. He had a remarkable life, and a fictionalized version of him appeared in the Netflix film, The Harder They Fall.
This book was a commission for the Denver Art Museum, and it’s still on display on the 7th floor of the Martin Building there, where you can read it on a touchscreen monitor.
In this story, Nat Love’s autobiography is distilled down to a few pages. This book contains the story, then a Spanish version of the story, as well as the original black & white art, the color art, and an afterword from Lauren Thompson, of the Denver Art Museum.
