Cowboy Country Journeys
The American West is home to some of the world's most fantastic terrain. So by horseback, canoe, river raft, jeep and llama pack, we see how the pioneer spirit to explore and discover is still very much alive and well.
Nothing so fundamentally changed the American West as did the "iron horse." This new form of transportation created fortunes, hastened the end of ancient cultures and shaped a new world. So climb aboard as we travel through the past and the present on America's Western railroads.
Critters of Cowboy Country
Across the American West, few treasures are as precious as the wildlife that roams this vast area. But for many of these animals—the bison, the elk, the deer, the wild horses—the days since the wild, wild West have been perilous times. We visit them in their natural habitats and see what's being done to protect them for the future.
