I love anything historical and meaningful. Cowboys to me signify hard work under the blazing hot Sun and the appreciation of sleep and rest 😴

Loved it!... BUT... As a Native American myself, I'm anxiously awaiting the availability of the companion(?) documentary... "Reel Injun"... An in-depth look at the other side of the old west cinema coin.
