Hundreds of books, movies, and television shows have glamorized the cowboy. In reality, cowboys were regarded as poorly paid menial laborers, not heroes. Besides revealing the myth behind the cowboy, this volume also explains how cattle ranching evolved from its historical Spanish roots to the cattle-boom era of the 1880s, when cattle drives, cow towns, cattle trails, and the open range played a pivotal role in forming the culture of the West.
