Relive the Old West with illustrated biographies of Western luminaries like "Buffalo Bill" Cody, Charles Goodnight, Bill Pickett, William and George Calloway, Joseph McCoy, and more The glory days of the Old West cowboy lasted for only a couple of decades, but during this short time the cowboy's reputation became a fundamental part of the American mythos. The Cowboys delves deep into the world of these iconic men. It gives an intimate insight into the tough working conditions of the cowboy's working kit, which has now achieved iconic status. This book even investigates the legendary Cowboy Code that governed the conduct and behavior of these rough-hewn men. The Cowboys examines the wider social impact of the nineteenth-century American cattle industry, which not only encouraged the building of railroads and new cattle towns in the western states, but also drew many different kinds of men to the frontier. Investors, freed slaves, crooks, ex-soldiers, and other would-be adventurers all took the opportunity to make a new start as cowhands and ranchers in the Wild West. The Cowboys investigates the life of the average cowboy and tells the stories of some of the most successful cattlemen. Even today, American culture continues to evoke the iconic persona of the cowboy through rodeos, movies, television, toys, books, and music. The Cowboys is a celebration of all aspects of the extraordinary cowboy legend.
