East meets West with fringes swinging! An entertaining blend of New York City history and Western lore perfect for visitors and historians, this volume presents short biographies of Western heroes or celebrities and tells how they made their mark on the city many considered the nation's media and cultural capital of the time.
Key locations are captured through both archival images and current photographs, allowing a glimpse of what it was like during the late nineteenth century and early twentieth century in the bustling city.
A timeline from 1812 to 1933 highlights the settling of the West alongside a history of New York City, and a bibliography provides an extensive list of further reading and reference materials.
