Based on Frank Harris’s My Reminiscences as a Cowboy, the 1958 movie Cowboy stars Glenn Ford and Jack Lemmon. A Chicago hotel clerk dreams of life as a cowboy and gets his shot in a cattle-driving outfit. Not surprisingly, the tenderfoot finds out life on the range is neither what he expected nor what he's been looking for. Considered the father of modern action novels, Morrell’s works include First Blood and the Rambo series, along with essays like "John Wayne: The Westerns." Free.
