About a two hundred year ago young men went west some were alone some had family and friend that came along. They may have had a horse, some walk. They did not have anything but the clothes on their back or what they could carry. They learn to live each day and deal with what the day would bring. No laws, no code, just make do to stay alive; the land was teaching them just what is valued. The only thing he could keep were the thing he was taught by his mom or dad to survive the loneliness. Finding work to care for cattle started to teach him just what to value. When a man has all the time in the world to think and take in what is about him. He leaned he had to do what had to be done. There was one to do it for him. A cowboy code is not wrote down it is a way of living beside most of them could not read or write.
