ohgiveme-ahomeThe song “Home on the Range” is filled with both ideal and real images of the West, and the author uses each stanza to examine the truth of these images in the contemporary West.

Regrettably, cattle have replaced antelope and pollution clouds the air. On the other hand, the Indian “likely no more to return” is resurging through profitable casinos and resorts.
