Description Edit | History

Western / Classical Western, tell stories set primarily in the latter half of the 19th century in the American Old West. They often center on the life of a nomadic cowboy, gunfighter, or outlaw and their horse. Recurring characters include the aforementioned cowboys, outlaws, bandits, lawmen, bounty hunters, Native Americans, Spaniards, Mexicans, gamblers, soldiers (especially mounted cavalry, such as buffalo soldiers), and settlers (farmers, ranchers, and townsfolk). Westerns often stress the harshness of the wilderness and the people, presenting a "mythic vision of the plains and deserts of the American West."
