The Cowboy in Art
Ed Ainsworth (Author)

When Cortes landed in Veracruz in 1519, a band of Aztec artists dispatched by Montezuma hastily sketched pictures of a new and terrifying monster that accompanied the Spaniards -  a strange four-legged creature with a tail like straws and the body of a man rising from its shoulders.  These drawings were the first pictorial representations of a man on horseback created in the New World.  Horses spread rapidly throughtout South America and ultimately wild hordes invaded Texas and California.  The era of the American cowboy was born.
