Summary
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.

Summary
The West fueled an entire industry: the entertainment business. When the first Western movie was shown, the audience stood up, cheered, and shouted for a re-run. Said Bronco Billy Anderson, "That's it. It's going to be the picture business for me. The future has no end. This program shows the West as the subject of popular culture and show business, the greatest circus act in the world, from dime novels to Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show, from the movie cowboys to that modern embodiment of the cowboy spirit, the country singer.
