Quotation Marks—Enclosing a multiword phrase in quotation marks tells the search engine to list only sites that contain those words in that exact order.

The following must appear in ALL CAPS and with a space on each side.

AND—Indicates that the records found must contain all the words joined by the AND operator. For example, to find objects that contain the words wizard, oz, and movie, enter wizard AND oz AND movie.

OR—Records found must contain at least one of the words joined by OR. For example, to find objects that contain the word dog or the word puppy, enter dog OR puppy.

AND NOT—Indicates that the records found cannot contain the word that follows the term AND NOT. For example, to find objects that contain the word pets but not the word dogs, enter pets AND NOT dogs.

Cowboys and Indians

play set

In the early and middle 20th century, Serial westerns at the movies and on television cemented the idea, in youngsters' heads, of cowboy and Native American battles throughout the old West. Young people, and especially boys, delighted in playing at these battles, either imaginatively by dressing the parts, or perhaps with a purchased play set such as this inexpensive example made by Hasbro. The set guaranteed "many hours of fun and play."
