The cowboy is the hero of many movies. He is,even today,a symbol of courage and adventure. But what was the life of the cowboy really like?
 
The cowboy‘s job is clear from the word “cowboy”。Cowboys were men who took care of cows and other cattle. The cattle were in the West and in Texas. People in the cities of the East wanted beef from these cattle. Trains could take the cattle east. But first the cattle had to get to the trains. Part of the cowboy’s job was to take the cattle hundreds of miles to the railroad towns.
 
The trips were called cattle drives. A cattle drive usually took several months. Cowboys rode for sixteen hours a day. Because they rode so much, each cowboy brought along about eight horses. A cowboy changed horses several times each day.
 
The cowboys had to make sure that the cattle arrived safely. Before starting on a drive,the cowboys branded the cattle. They burned a make on the cattle to show who they belonged to. But these marks didn‘t stop rustlers,or cattle thieves. Cowboys had to protect the cattle from rustlers. Rustlers made the dangerous trip even more dangerous.
 
Even though their work was very difficult and dangerous,cowboys did not earn much money. They were paid bally. Yet cowboys liked their way of life. They lived in a wild and open country. They lived a life of adventure and freedom.

The joke spread,and soldiers began saying that their food came from Uncle Sam. Before long,people called all things that came from the government “Uncle Sam‘s”,“Uncle Sam” became a nickname for the US government.
 
Soon there were drawings and cartoons of Uncle Sam in newspapers. In these early pictures,Uncle Sam was a young man. He wore stars and stripes,but his hair was dark and he had not a beard. The beard was added when Abraham Lincoln was President. President Lincoln had a beard.

Dear Xiao Hua,
 
I have just come back from a trip to the United States. I had a very good time there.
 
I first went to New York. It is really a very big city. I saw quite many skyscrapers there. But the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center are no more to be seen.
 
Two days later I went to Los Angeles. I visited Hollywood on the day I got there. After that I spent a whole day in Disneyland. It is really a wonderful place you shouldn‘t miss.
 
I also went to Reno,Nevada. There is a beautiful lake named Dahu. The scenery there is beautiful!
 
I hope you will take a trip to the United States some day.
 
Love,
 
Lina
