— A Young American Cowboy’s Ride of Passage – Part I: From Boy to Man
— An American Cowboy’s Ride of Passage – Part II: Hunting Trip Transformed Father, Son
Every man was once a boy. And every little boy has dreams, big dreams, dreams of being the hero, of beating the bad guys, of doing daring feats and rescuing the damsel in distress. Every little girl has dreams, too: of being rescued by her prince and swept up into a great adventure, knowing that she is the beauty.
But what happens to those dreams when we grow up? Walk into most churches, have a look around, and ask yourself: What is a Christian man? Without listening to what is said, look at what you find there. Most Christian men are . . . bored.
John Eldredge revises and updates his best-selling, renowned Christian classic, Wild at Heart, and in it invites men to recover their masculine heart, defined in the image of a passionate God. And he invites women to discover the secret of a man’s soul and to delight in the strength and wildness men were created to offer.

The Degradation of Manhood and Culture
Associate professor Christine Porter told the Laramie Boomerang (New UW slogan draws criticism from faculty) that the word “cowboy” makes “almost everybody” picture a white, heterosexual male.
“As the director of American Indian Studies, it becomes incredibly problematic to try to imagine using any of this promotional material when I’m recruiting Native students,” Jaime said. “The term ‘cowboy’ evokes the play time — the racist play time — of cowboys and Indians, right?”
Eventually, “Morali nailed down all of the roles that he believed were simultaneously universally recognizable (at least to the American man) and embodied the macho, masculine ideals he felt typified that particular element of the gay scene. These were soldier, police officer, construction worker, cowboy, biker, Native American and sailor, some combination of which has served as the basis of the group ever since.”
