This chapter describes the life of Marvin “Cowboy” Smith, founded from self-sufficiency and value for aestheticism even though he had lived an impoverished life since his early days. It dwells on a life story of a man borne from racism, filial unappreciation, and his struggles for survival in solitude. Finally, this chapter sets out its ultimate purpose—to make people recognize the distastefulness of suffering and dying beneath the face of cultural interest and concern.

Keywords:   Marvin “Cowboy” Smith, self-sufficiency, aestheticism, racism, filial unappreciation, survival in solitude
