Description

Take a rollicking ride through cowboy subculture, from reality to the romantic image. There is no more enduring icon of the American West than the cowboy, rugged, individualistic, and hero of countless movies and TV shows. Here is his true story, along with a look at how popular culture both created and reflected his "wild West" lifestyle. From the corral to the range and into the dance hall, this absorbing chronicle contrasts the wrangler's world in its golden age with the mythological character of books and film. Passages from the best classic cowboy literature offer insights into his day-to-day life, challenges, and aspirations. Quotes, anecdotes, and lyrics bring cowboy language alive. Throughout, archival images depict men tired, riding tall in the saddle, and grinning in the dance-hall light. Full-color photos show off the distinctive gear, and carefully selected pictures from pop culture illustrate the formation of this abiding American legend.
