I love this. As a point of interest, my Dad, who studies so many things, says that 76% of the cowboys were black, it was largely an brief era after the civil war, reall hard and poorly paid work, and it was available to whomever wanted to suffer though it. Some, of course, did OK and went on to own their own places or homestead their way, but others just grunt labour.
