The year 1892 was a time before electronics, when gentleman would watch the natural world in all its beauty as it was in one point in time just to relax their mind and body after a hard day’s work. Monte Walsh displays true old western life. In the opening scene, the cowboys are herding cattle. There are the old western stores in the town such as the general store, and the barber and bath house, pointing out part of the way of life back in the 19th century. In the winters the cowboys would ride down to Texas then up to Canada for work and come back with their pay waiting for them.
So who is the man on the pale horse and why would hell follow him? Does Johnny Ringo think it is himself on that horse or does he see someone else on that horse? These questions are answered in this very traditional but fairly modern western that takes place in the nineteenth century and involves shoot-outs, gambling, the seeking of fortune and drinking. Tombstone portrays what most westerns portray; a battle of the lesser evil verses the evil.
The horses do and don’t have the same significance as they did in the Paleolithic period; yes we still use them to ride but not to for the same reason as nomads did. Today we use them for recreation but the nomads they where a way of life without horses it may have changed their whole culture. The rhinos on the other hand are depicted very much like we see them today. I think that if humans in future viewed a picture of a deer that they would wonder why it was so significant to our culture. A cave drawing of a deer in North America would show that deer have either always been here or where once hear, even if extinct when people
American Myth in the Western Film Stagecoach’s Dallas: America’s Sweetheart Many regard John Ford’s Stagecoach (1939) as the film that brought the Western genre back to life. The movie made John Wayne a star, and the racing zoom shot that introduces his character has been cited by film scholars and studied by directors as one of the iconic shots in movie storytelling. The film became the standard by which all subsequent Westerns would be compared to for years to come. It can be considered a classic western because it includes stock elements such as the character archetypes- the heroic cowboy, the damsel in distress, the loud and sloppy town drunk, etc.- but unlike many others in the genre, it went deeper to examine human nature with an emotional complexity that had not been seen in Western films before. Ford put these characters in the claustrophobic space of a stagecoach as it left civilization and reeled through the desert, and then turned these genre archetypes upside down.
Kickapoo Indians used to live in the lower parts of Wisconsin but later lived in the southern parts of Illinois and Indiana, which were among lands detained by Illinois and Miami, according to the Catholic Encyclopedia. Because they were undeveloped and agricultural, they took many journeys near the country's longest river, the Mississippi, to hunt down wild and tame creatures. Hunting, they used many earthly tools that they shaped themselves such as bows, arrows, and spears. Also, because they were agricultural they ate staple food such as corn. As they, the Kickapoo Indians, became more known, they were known as travelers and for their daring or risk-taking character.
Blazing Saddles townsfolk are white, but they are stupid. In most western’s the townsfolk are pretty smart and know what is going on. The saloon brawl that happens is usually between multiple people, but in Blazing Saddles there is only one man, Mongol, who fights all of them. Another example of stereotype reversal is when the white people, in the beginning, are on the railroad and ask the black people to sing a song like they do in the fields. However, the black people sing like white people would, and the white people are jumping and dancing around like black people would have.
There was also a strap that went around your ankle that kept them from falling completely off. Quite often all of us would go for a ride in the horse drawn sleigh to visit some of our neighbors and good many times we would go the 8 miles to the Canyon Creek Store and to the post office. The snow should be so deep on the road a sleigh was the only form of transportation that could get you where you needed to go. Dad had a set of bells that hooked onto the horse’s harnesses and would jingle all the way. He would put hay on the sleigh and we would cover up with a big old fur robe.
Chapter 9 section 2 outline -An American story, this explains how and why Americans would risk everything to go west. And the Americans would go west because if a man is disappointed in politics or love he will buy land, but if he disgraces himself he will betake himself and move west -Western Territory, This passage says how the men and women traveled and how they would have to travel through harsh conditions and all they had for protection was a rifle in search for land. Most of these men were farmers and they traveled in Conestoga wagons, which were sturdy vehicles topped with white canvas. Finally on the way the way farmers would settle near rivers so the Spanish allowed the Americans to sail on the lower part of the Mississippi river
This zone is filled with more state parks and undesired farm land. The undesirability of this land for cultivation provides a better environment that prevents the wolves from needing to wander into farm territory for food. Farmers living in these zones have to refer to other options to deal with invading wolves. Many of them use speakers projecting howls to imitate other Grey Wolf packs. This usually makes the invading pack migrate to other areas.
