Fashion that was in vogue in the East was highly desirable to pioneers during the frontier period of the American West. It was also extraordinarily difficult to obtain, often impractical, and sometimes the clothing was just not durable enough for the men and women who were forging new homes for themselves in the West. Full hoopskirts were of little use in a soddy on the prairie, and chaps and spurs were a vital part of the cowboy's equipment. In this book, author Chris Enss examines the fashion that shaped the frontier through short essays; brief clips from letters, magazines, and other period sources; and period illustrations demonstrating the sometimes bizarre, often beautiful, and frequently highly inventive ways of dressing oneself in the Old West.

The Wild, Wild West. Where Men are Men… Sweet-talkin', sweet-kissin; Jackson West has quite a way with the ladies—and a reputation to uphold. So when the sexy cowboy wagers he can seduce Purity, Miracle Mountain's newest celebrity, he quickly learns he's stepped in it. Because the only way into the lady's life is for Jackson to dress up as "Mrs. Simpson," Purity's housekeeper! Jackson is shocked to find himself getting in touch with his more sensitive side. Moreover, as Purity's confidant, he discovers she's got some pretty wild secrets. So what's a man—in a dress—to do when Ellen confesses that she's got designs on cowboy Jackson West?

The West in the World relates the story of how the west has transformed - and been transformed by - the rest of the world. The authors examine the West’s contributions to the world and how the west has changed and embraced new ideas through contact with the people outside its center. Using a political / cultural framework the text weaves a strong thread of social history into the narrative by showing how civilizations grow and are shaped through the decisions and actions of real people. The authors bring history to life by using art and maps as a central feature of learning. They build discussions of art into the narrative to help students interpret artwork, and provide analytical map guides that reveal the connections between geography, politics, and other developments. This strong, rich narrative is short enough to allow instructors the flexibility of introducing other sources and books as supplement, while giving students a solid understanding of Western Civilization without overwhelming them.
