The Life of the Cowboys - Reality versus Myth

The lifestyle of a cowboy on the great plains was a lonely one. Near the turn of the century the need for skilled,
reliable cowboys was waning and something needed to be done to prevent the exctinction of the cowboy way of life.

This section of the site will give the viewer a look at both the reality of the cowboy's life
versus the myth that playwrights, artists, and Hollywood portray as the real cowboy life to the the general public.

This section will be added to weeky until completed.
