"Here is an energetic and informative look at the working lives of cowboys from around the world. Spectacular real-life photographs of horses, cattle, branding irons, and lariats offer a unique "eyewitness" view of life on the range. See what an authentic chuckwagon looks like, how an expert ropes a calf, a rodeo rider in action on a wild steer, how a saddle is made, and a Mongolian herdsman lassoing a wild horse. Learn where wild horses and bulls live in France, why cowboys wear chaps, how to tame a bucking bronco, and why a gaucho decorates his belt with silver coins. Discover how Annie Oakley got her nickname, why an Australian saddle has no horn, and how the cowboy's romantic image influenced music and films, and much, much more!"--Résumé de l'éditeur

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

16 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and held by 351 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, America's creation of the West is unique. Since this construct has little to do with history, The American West argues that our beliefs about the West amount to a modern functional myth." "In addition to presenting a sustained analysis of how and why the myth originated, David Murdoch demonstrates that the myth was invented, for the most part deliberately, and then outgrew the purposes of its inventors." "The American West answers questions which have too often been either begged or ignored. Why should the West become the focus for myth in the first place, and why, given the long process of western settlement, is the cattleman's West so central and the cowboy, of all prototypes, the mythic hero? And why should the myth have retained its potency up to the last decade of the twentieth century?"--BOOK JACKET
