Summary The Writer's Guide to Everyday Life in the Wild West shows you firsthand what it was like to tame the prairies, fight the battles and build the boom towns. From things people ate (including boudins and buffalo humps) to what they wore (such as linsey-woolsey, calico and duck), this book is packed with historical accounts, maps and photographs to give you a complete perspective on this fascinating era. More than a reference book, this guide is like a trip back to the Old West
