The American cowboy: the myth & the reality by Joe Bertram Frantz( Book )
32 editions published between 1955 and 2016 in English and held by 1,303 libraries worldwide
The cowboy is America's most popular folk hero; he appeals to millions of readers of fiction, historical narratives, biography, and folk tales; he commands a vast audience in radio, television, and the movies; but what was he? The question is not merely rhetorical, nor is its past tense miscalculated. As the authors of this book are careful to point out, the real, dyed-in-the-wool cowboy is a heroic being from the American past, and he richly deserves to be understood in terms of reality, as distinguished from myth, which has given him characteristics not entirely his own. Here, then, is the cowboy in his roles in frontier history and as he has appeared in literature - re-examined, revitalized, and set in proper perspective. -- Book Jacket

In 1907 Cordelia Jane Sloan married Robert L. Duke, a ranch hand who had risen to division manager for the 3,000,000-acre XIT Ranch of Texas, the world's largest. An eager observer, she early began the habit of keeping a diary. As time passed, she had the foresight to realize that the sweaty, tired, hungry cowhands with whom she visited were part of a unique phase of American life. What she particularly perceived was that these men would be glamorized and the memory of their work distorted by writers who could sense a pay vein when they saw one
