African-American. Hispanic. Female. The real American cowboy bears little resemblance to their Hollywood counterpart. American cowboys led a rough and lonely existence, often left to themselves on the high plains of American Midwest, as they rounded up cattle, tended vast ranches, and lived life constantly on the move. Take a look at the real cowboy's world through historical film clips, archival photographs and demonstrations of the tools of the cowboy's trade.
