In our most recent installment of Western Skies, we explored the proximity between the perceptions and realities of the West and cowboy culture. We made a visit to the Western Jubilee Recording Company in Colorado Springs on a recent night where famed cowboy poet, Waddie Mitchell recited his poems and Western guitar player, Rich O’Brien picked out some tunes.

In the 21st century is there such a thing as an actual cowboy? A person who rides on the back of a horse with a rope in his hand working a ranch in the ways ranches were worked more than a hundred years ago?
