KIRKUS REVIEW

A compendium of past and present information about the West which ranges from geography and Indians to superstitions and songs. This is an entertaining skimming of the highlights of the names and places, mines and people, of the glory and decline of the towns, of the saloons and gambling, of rugged horse play, of the girls and the famous madam's, of individual and gang violence and lawlessness, of religion and its persons, of the colorful language and the regional food, of cattle brands and tall tales. A chatty companion book for anyone interested in the background of western lore and distinctive western customs.
