Editorial Reviews

The impression we have is culled from the celluloid images of Hollywood westerns and the pages of dime-store novels. The truth is far more complicated and captivating. Bill Kurtis hosts this feature-length exploration of the soul of an American icon, exposing the long trail of misconceptions and revealing what life was--and is--really like on the range. The journey winds from the days of the Spanish vaquero to the real-life cowboys in unusual places like Hawaii. Long-time cowboy actors Richard Farnsworth (The Straight Story) and Harry Carey, Jr. (Rio Grande, Tombstone) reveal the differences between the characters they play and the "real" cowboy, and we'll examine the role that spectacles like Buffalo Bill's Wild West show had in shaping the image we have of these iconic horsemen. Saddle up for a ride into our history and heritage, a fascinating look at the authentic story of an American legend--THE REAL COWBOY.
