The life of a cowboy was not a glamorous one. Sleeping on the ground, eating the same bad food for days on end, hard work all day long. This is what the cowpoke faced to earn only decent pay, driving cattle north into Kansas along the Chisholm Trail. This route ran through the town of Duncan. I drove to the museum enjoying the countryside from my air conditioned car, blithely crossing creeks and rugged terrain without any effort. After I left, I took another look and appreciated how difficult it must have been for young men to drive herds of wild cattle hundreds of miles on horseback. They came to earn a buck, but they left us stories of a legendary lifestyle now lost in North America. This museum is well worth seeing.
