"In 1954, six men who spent their young lives as cowboys in the Southwest, now gather at the Matador Hotel in downtown Albuquerque, New Mexico, for weekly games of cribbage. One rainy afternoon, on of the men brings his ten-year-old grandson with him to the cribbage game. The boy has on his red straw hat, his cap gun, and wears his leather bullet belt with silver painted wooden bullets. They play cribbage and tell stories - and the boy listens while they pass down a way of life and western tradition that is quickly becoming extinct. Many year later the boy looks back and remembers the stories he heard and the lessons he learned on that day when he became a Cowboy for a Rainy Afternoon." - Taken from the tit el page verso.
