Summary
The story of the West is America's national myth-the myth of romantic Indians, larger-than-life heroes and villains, nature grander and fiercer than nature itself, of untold wealth and epic human endurance. "If they are human, they're a separate species," said Charley Russell about cowboys. This episode shows us the West of Frederic Remington and Charley Russell, whose works transformed the working cowboy into the most enduring hero-figure in American folklore. Russell became a living representative of the West he portrayed, the poet laureate of the passing frontier. In their very different ways, he and Remington created a gallery of heroes that live on in the American imagination
