In a play that is realistic, sometimes humorous, and always profoundly moving, Larry L. King deals with the problems of aging and our mistaken stereotypes and impersonal treatment of the elderly. Cowboy Bennett, long a resident of the Golden Shadows Senior Citizens Home, is a man with not only memories of the past but also dreams of the future for himself and his companions—especially the charming widow, Flora Harper. At the play’s end, you'll want to stand and yell, “Ya! Ya!” with Cowboy.

The Golden Shadows Old West Museum is based on Michael Blackman’s short story, which was named the Best Short Fiction of 1973 by the Texas Institute of Letters. The text of the short story is included in this edition.
