The Frontier Club

Popular Westerns and Cultural Power, 1880-1924

Christine Bold

  • Delineates the western's network of influence in more detail, depth, and breadth than any previous study
  • Reveals, for the first time, the key contributions of upper-class women-the mothers, wives, daughters, and mentors of the frontier clubmen-in making the modern western
  • Brings to light buried archival materials to show the centrality of African Americans in the making of the white western
