607 Steinbach Nutcracker The Musical Cowboy
Musical Cowboy-In America’s “Wild West” — especially in Texas
around 1820 to 1840, the cattle-herders or ‘cowboys” on horseback
there lived and worked utilizing methods and equipment borrowed from the
Mexicans. To this day they are still world-renowned as exceptional
horseback riders, excellent marksmen and superb scouts.
The cowboys used to drive their herds
to the cattle and livestock markets in the Midwest. But because of the
construction of the railroad, which now handles most of the livestock
transport, a good deal of the life style and romance of the cowboys has
been lost. What has remained are their songs, their large ten gallon
>‘Stetsons~ and of course, their whiskey.
There are still some cowboys working on
the huge ranches of North America and every now and again you can still
hear the old cowboy tune: “The Yellow Rose of Texas”. The weekly “westerns”
on television let us relive the long and arduous trek to the West and
recapture the many hardships and tribulations that the early pioneers
and cowboys had to endure in settling this vast land.
