Learn how cowboys first appeared in the 1500s and then became famous in Texas and the "Wild West" from 1840 to 1890. Discover what it was like to live and work on a ranch and then ride horseback, moving cattle on the trail. See how cattle drives affected the lives of settlers and American Indians in the West. Find out why cattle trails ended and the lives of cowboys changed forever. This book describes in detail the lives of ordinary people in the United States who became cowboys and spent their lives herding cattle and working on ranches to feed the nation. Each book in the series uses reconstruction illustrations and photographs along with clear text and fact boxes to bring the story of our nation to life.
