The American West : the invention of a myth by David Hamilton Murdoch( Book )

15 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 346 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Americans have chosen to invest one small part of their history, the settlement of the western wilderness, with extraordinary significance. The lost frontier of the 1800s remains not merely a source of excitement and romance but of inspiration, because it is seen as providing a set of unique and imperishable core-values: individualism, self-reliance, and a pristine sense of right and wrong. As a construct of the imagination, our creation of the West is exceptional. Since this construct has little to do with history, David Murdoch argues that our beliefs about the West amount to a modern functional myth."

Zudem berichtet das Buch auch über Viehhirten aus der Welt z.B. den Hirten der Camargue, "gardiens" genannt oder den Cowboys in Australien. Ein interessantes Buch, das viel Wissenswertes rund um die Cowboys in vielen grossen und kleinen Texten leicht verständlich vermittelt und mit vielen Fotos und Bildmaterial veranschaulicht.

Indianer by David Hamilton Murdoch( Book )

4 editions published in 2011 in German and Undetermined and held by 19 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In den Schöpfungsmythen der Indianer ist Amerika ihr Ursprungsland. Archäologen gehen jedoch davon aus, dass die ersten Menschen vor etwa 40 000 Jahren aus Sibirien nach Amerika gelangten und sich an Klima- und Umweltveränderungen anpassten. Wer sind die Indianer? Welche Stämme gibt es und wo leben sie? Warum trugen die Häuptlinge des Fox-Stammes Ketten aus Bärentatzen? Auf diese und viele weitere Fragen bekommen Kinder in Band 18 der neuen grossen Wissensreihe memo Antworten. Spektakuläre Bilder von Apachen, Komantschen, Seminolen und vielen anderen Stämmen zeigen, wie die Indianer wirklich gelebt haben. Gut gegliederte, kurze Texte erklären die Thematik für Kinder leicht verständlich, sodass auch schwierigere Sachverhalte begreifbar werden. Rubriken wie "Erstaunliche Fakten", "Fragen und Antworten" oder "Rekordverdächtig" sowie ein umfangreiches Glossar wiederholen das vorher vermittelte Wissen und geben noch einmal einen Überblick über die Thematik. Ideal auch für Referate und Schulprojekte. (Quelle: Homepage des Verlags)
