"Young man, go west!"
Among the cowboys and frontiersmen, miners and homesteaders were a group of young adventurers - the rich young tenderfoot. These tourists were not seeking their fortunes but were tourists, looking to get away from the confines of civilization even briefly. 
One of these young men took his journals and turned them into fiction, becoming one of the best-selling authors in America. Even today, his novel, The Virginian, is one of the top 50 fictions in the last century. 
Owen Wister was proud of his status as Tenderfoot. And even prouder when he was able to shed the title and call himself a pioneer of Wyoming!
