This paper will explain historical events concerning the cowboys and depict their true lifestyle which contrasts the stereotypes normally associated with being a cowboy, as well as summarize the novel The Day the Cowboys Quit. The historical cowboy strike of 1883 was led by Tom Harris, a ranch hand at the LS ranch in Tascosa, Texas. Harris was tired of being controlled by ranches that were owned by corporations only interested in monetary wealth, specifically five major ranches: the LIT, the LX, the LS, the LE, and the T Anchor. Additionally, the ranch owners were establishing new rules that did not allow cowboys to receive calves as part of their pay, brand mavericks, or run small herds on their employers’ land. Many cowboys felt cheated by these new laws and believed that they solely benefitted ranch owners (Zeigler).
In this myth, Native Americans teach an important lesson on how humans can be bad through coyotes actions.

Don’t Lose Your Self Certain words and phrases are used in Diane Glancy’s poem, “Without Title,” to convey a theme about Native American tradition how when you lose your identity, you lose yourself. An example for this is the word “buffalo” in the story how it expresses how the father is like a buffalo because of his hard work and his mentality as well. The father would “hunt” in the story and bring back meat to the family, he would also bring back their horns and hides as trophies in a way, although the wife didn’t agree on that part maybe because she wasn’t Native American. In the story the father has a “vision” which he imagined going and working in the city instead of hunting the buffalo. The reason why the father might have had that vision

In the same Turkey Creek scene, we see another example of how the producer ties in liberty and the freedom to speak, and then the ultimate sacrifice that one undertakes for one’s beliefs. Despite several attempts by the commanding officer to get the medicine man to stop dancing and chanting, the medicine man ignores the orders knowing that

He was killed by Nathan Lamson and his son, Chauncy, who had been out in the woods looking for errant horses or deer hunting – depending on which account you read. Ohler 230/ Wowinape had no time to aid his ailing father, other than lay moccasins at his father’s feet and wrapping him in a blanket as Dakota custom dictates to assist Little Crow on his long journey to the spirit world.

Both genres focus on the end of an entire way of life—the end of the Samurai and the end of the cowboys and cattle ranchers. With the changing society, many Samurai and cowboys roamed like lone wolves because they were out of place. These lone wolves attract audiences because people are drawn to the journey of the hero who puts duty over desire. Kurosawa loved Western films because they have great heroes.
