Description


Excerpt from The Cowboy: His Characteristics, His Equipment, and His Part in the Development of the West

The American cowboy, by reason of his picturesqueness; has been a frequent subject for the dramatist, the novelist, the illustrator, and the motion-picture photographer.

All these producers have been limited by the technical requirements of their arts, and have stressed the cowboy's picturesqueness to the exclusion of his other qualities. They have done this so definitely and attractively' as to create an ostensible type which rapidly is being accepted by the American public as an accurate portrait of the now bygone puncher.

The portrait is often charmingly presented, but it is not accurate. The cowboy was far more than a theatric char acter. He was an affirmative, constructive factor in the social and political development of the United States.
