Re: Origins of the Western Cowboy

Hello Dan,
Good job! I have the Peter H. Wood reference in my notes. It has been said that this reference is the one that is the foundation for the claims that the word, "Cowboy," originated as a result of slave culture. Of course Wood makes no definitive assertion that it was the case, but some believe it was a statement that got mis-interpreted.
