True West

Arts, Traditions & Celebrations (Clarkson Potter)


Cowboys and drugstore cowboys, fiestas and rodeos, ranches and haciendas, miners, pioneers, and mountain men. The truth about the West contains many wests, dishing up a rich amalgam of cultures, traditions, facts and myths.

In their third book together, author and historian Christine Mather and Parsons explore that American West which began with the arrival of the conquistadores and which continues today in artifacts that vary from movie Westerns and Beacon blankets to cowboy boots, buckles, belts and Stetson hats.

With more than 400 color and vintage photographs, "True West" offers a fascinating investigation into one of America’s most compelling and enduring sources for legends.
