Course detail: OSH158 - The Cowboy: America's Folk Hero
With a Stetson on your head and boots on your feet, you could be anywhere in the world and people would immediately assume you were an American. The cattle were in Texas, the cow towns were in Kansas, and it was on the epic drives up the Old Chisholm Trail after the Civil War that the cowboy was transformed from a drover into the mythic hero of American popular culture and one of the most recognizable symbols of our country. Kansas also contributed the cowboy hat, cowboy boots, the first cowgirl, and "The Streets of Laredo" to the cowboy mystique.
