In the late 1800's Utah’s landscape was dominated by ranches. Cowboys could be found from the mountain ranges in the north to the canyons in the south and just about everywhere in between. They became an icon of the "old West" and were are also known as horse wranglers, cowpunchers, cowhands, ranch hands and buckaroos, but the name "cowboy" was inspired from the original nickname, "cowpoke.
Butch Cassidy is the best known of Utah's cowboy outlaws, rivaling the fame of even Jesse James and Billy the Kid. Cassidy's gang, the Wild Bunch, were among the most successful of all western outlaws and many a movie has been made about these bandits and their antics.
Today Northern Utah still has its hard working ranchers but alongside this a new breed of cowboy is appearing.
