A cowboy is an animal herder who tends cattle on ranches in North America, traditionally on horseback, and often performs a multitude of other ranch-related tasks. The historic American cowboy of the late 19th century arose from the vaquero traditions of northern Mexico and became a figure of special significance and legend. A subtype, called a wrangler, specifically tends the horses used to work cattle. In addition to ranch work, some cowboys work for or participate in rodeos. Cowgirls, first defined as such in the late 19th century, had a less-well documented historical role, but in the modern world work at identical tasks and have obtained considerable respect for their achievements.Cattle handlers in many other parts of the world, particularly South America and Australia, perform work similar to the cowboy.

 

Gold miners-Though various types of mines have existed across the nation, almost from the very discovery of America, those in the American West are and were, the most plentiful, and the history they’ve left in their wakes is of romance, fortunes made and lost, hardships, greed, Indian Wars, and numerous crusty old ghost towns.

From the beginning, America presented an image of golden wealth, and that image has never been lacking to the rest of the world. A key factor in shaping the national character of this country, the discovery of gold and other precious metals in the American West accelerated western expansion, beginning with the California Gold Rush in 1848.

After the discovery go gold in California, which clearly showed how rich the strikes could be, more prospectors by the thousands headed west to explore every promising region in their search for wealth. To these many adventurers, no mountain was too high to climb, no canyon too precarious to descend, and no river too difficult to cross. They were a determined lot.

California Gold Miners

Though there was never another find that was as large as that of California, there were numerous others that led prospectors by the thousands to the west, sure that they would find their fortune. in 1859, gold was found near Denver, Colorado, and the Comstock Lode was developed in Nevada. In the 1860s, precious minerals were found in eastern Oregon, Montana, and Idaho. In the 1870s, more strikes were made in the Black Hills of South Dakota and Tombstone, Arizona. Other finds led to boom camps in the Coeur d’Alene region in Idaho in 1883 and the Klondike Gold Rush in 1898.

Many states in the American West were initially settled primarily by prospectors and miners, including Nevada, Colorado, Idaho, Arizona, Montana, North Dakota, South Dakota, and Alaska. Though these states and others had been traveled by explorers, trappers, and traders, there were far more miners than those other fearless pioneers. These states’ histories are intimately tied to mining activities, and many became territories and attained state status because of the mining activities.

Gold Panning

The early attention paid to mining focused on gold and silver discoveries. However, later, discoveries of industrial minerals like coal, copper, iron, oil, and gas stimulated new and continued growth of settlements in the west.

Several men made their fortunes and gained fame for their mining activities, such as George Hurst, who made his fortune in the Comstock Lode of Nevada, Horace Tabor, who became the silver king of Colorado after grubstaking a miner in Leadville; George W. MacKay, who also made his fortune in the Comstock Lode; and many others.

However, the vast majority became laborers, working for poor wages in dangerous environments and living in desolate communities. Their glamorous and romantic images of mining were more often dashed as they performed back-breaking work and experienced numerous mining accidents.

Of the many mining camps of the American West, some were stimulated by other types of growth, and they continue to exist today — cities such as Butte, Montana; Silver City, New Mexico; El Dorado, California; and many more.

But others faded into insignificance, leaving behind only shells of their former selves, becoming ghost towns decades ago. Of yet more, there is no sign of their prosperous times whatsoever, except for a debris-strewn and pockmarked landscape.

The mining industry of the American West not only created fortunes and disappointment for the individual miners but also played an important part in American labor history, mining technology, and the growth of geological knowledge. It was also responsible for displacing thousands of Native Americans, leading to several Indian Wars and their forcible removal to reservations. Another negative impact that these many mining booms left behind was massive environmental scars, which are still being addressed today.

Today, hundreds of ghost towns in the American West give tribute to their more prosperous times. Some, like Bodie, California; Bannack, Montana; and Bayhorse, Idaho, have been preserved as state parks. Others have become commercial tourist destinations, such as Tombstone, Arizona; South Pass City, Wyoming; and Virginia City, Nevada. However, there are many more that are slowly returning to the elements as their crumbling structures deteriorate over time. A few of these include Comet, Montana; Delamar, Nevada; Steins, New Mexico; Miners Delight, Wyoming, and dozens of others.


The American frontier, also known as the Old West, popularly known as the Wild West, encompasses the geography, history, folklore, and culture associated with the forward wave of American expansion in mainland North America that began with European colonial settlements in the early 17th century and ended with the admission of the last few western territories as states in 1912 (except Alaska, which was not admitted into the Union until 1959).
