Rate this:
Illustrated with images of sabers, steamboats, handguns, hats, saddles, and more, this is a valuable resource for historians, re-enactors, costumers, and others. With encyclopedic knowledge and an extensive collection of Old West memorabilia handed down to him from Civil War veterans, cowboys, frontiersmen, and Native Americans, William Foster-Harris truly understood what the days of cowboys and trail drivers looked and felt like. His book offers the fashions and feel of the Old West from the end of the Civil War through the 1890s by detailing the styles of the period; military dress for the Union and Confederate armies; weaponry of the time; and more. Illustrated with clear, precise drawings to assist the descriptions, few books present a better idea of how the West really looked.
