The cowboy has become the hero of many movies. He is, even to。day, believed to have courage and adventure(冒险). But what was the life of a cowboy really like?
T。he cowboy’s job is clea。r。 from the word “cowboy”. A cowboy, according to dictionary explanation, is a man who rides a horse and whose job is to care for cattle(牛).

P。art of the cowboy’s job was to。 take the cattle hundreds of miles to the railroad towns.
These trips were。 called cattle drives. A catt。le drive。 usually took several m。onths. Cow。boys rode for sixteen hours a day. Because they rode so much, eac。h cowboy brought along about eight horses. A cowboy changed horses several times each。 day.

Just a couple of hours ago, I was on the plane, re。ady t。o fly home from London. The flight had been put off by a few h。ours so it felt good to be s。o close to take-off.
