”When you call me that, smile,” the hero said to the bad man in the first of thousands of cowboy novels, Owen Wister’s classic “The Virginian.”  Even before the book’s publication in 1902, the cowboy had become a part of the American psyche.  Something about him – tall in the saddle, alone, facing danger, one man against nature’s vast, treeless plains and humanity’s outlaws – that appealed to people and made the cowboy a folk hero, and half-real, half-mythological symbol of the American West.”  (Source:  H HISTORY Vault)
