These men worked hard herding, branding, and tending to cattle from sun up until sun down. However, over the years the image of the cowboy has been blurred by media. Often times when someone thinks of cowboys they think of a vicious gunslinger who is always looking for a fight. In reality, many cowboys could not even afford a gun. Regardless, throughout Kelton’s novel, The Day the Cowboys Quit, he was able to effectively portray the correct speech patterns, distinguishing characteristics, and lifestyle of the Texas

As a farmer, James Kelso may not have known much about the savagery that was associated with war, however he would soon learn. After signing up to fight for the Union cause, Kelso recruited men from Cumberland County as well as neighboring areas, to form Company D of the 130th Volunteer Infantry Regiment. Bravery may have seemed like something that was running rampant throughout the countryside considering the number of men that signed up to join both the Union and Confederacy, however war has a way of turning the bravest of men into cowards. The fact that Kelso rallied his town to join the Union provides valuable insight into the close knit nature of the town of Shippensburg.
The "culture of honor" that takes place throughout the Appalachian Mountains is when someone has to be aggressive and respected in order to protect what is their property. If they are looked upon as weak and fragile, they aren 't able to make a living because people would just run over them.

Onnyx Bei Dr. Lowery Western Films 27 June 2015 Cowboys and Samurai and Their Search for Identity Unlike any other type of film, many classic Samurai and Western films have an epic grandeur. 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.
Those of a more liberal nature will view Brokeback Mountain as a bastion of tolerance, an in depth review of the harsh condition of intolerance and a cry for acceptance for the right for love to exist between consenting adults regardless of their gender or sexual orientation. Brokeback Mountain is the story of two Cowboys who are hired to herd sheep in the very rural Brokeback Mountain in Wyoming. The two Cowboys are typically ‘southern American’ in that they both come from the rural-south; they are tough, proud and poorly educated. Both men give the impression herding sheep is demeaning and that they’d rather be herding the beef cattle, a more ‘manly’ task.
If the amount of grass is reduced in the ecosystem, the entire food chain will be affected greatly. Due to a smaller food source, the primary consumers, the savanna hares, will also experience a decrease in population since the new amount of grass can not sustain the initial amount of savanna hares. Since the savanna hare population decreases, the food source for the secondary consumers, the caracals, will also experience a decrease in population. The caracals do feed off of other animals, but it is likely these animals are also affected by the decrease in grass. The total food supply for the caracals decreased, so the caracals will experience a decrease in population.
By having a varied approach to subsistence, the Indians could mitigate setbacks like drought, crop failure, and animal population fluctuations. However, as some of the Plains Indians familiarized themselves with horses, they forwent the varied approach in favor of solely hunting bison on horseback. Eschewing a sedentary lifestyle for a nomadic one was one of the main differences between the Plains Indians and the Indians of the Northeast and Southwest; the Southwestern tribes were mostly sedentary, while the Northeastern tribes were semi-sedentary. Relying heavily on trade and raids and a shift in gender roles were other big differences formed in nomadic tribes. Focusing exclusively on bison
