Details

With the expansion of the country came the expansion of what people wore on a day-to-day basis in the wild frontier of the West. Having moved away from established towns and trade routes, early settlers in the American West made their own clothes out of necessity. With the eventual introduction of familiar fabrics and clothing items, the styles favored by Western settlers and their families were distinct. The American West includes coverage of the types of dress worn by various Native American peoples as well as the apparel of the gunslingers, railroad men, explorers, and cowboys of the Wild West.

Chapters include:

  • Frontiersmen and Explorers
  • Travelers and Settlers
  • Native Americans
  • The Iron Horse
  • Soldiers and Heroes
  • Cowboys
  • Townsfolk
  • Outlaws, Lawmen, and Gunslingers.
