GO WEST AGAIN Sylvia suggests further reading inspired by our recent feature


Having read your Wild West special (June, 2015, can I suggest two books that can widen the understanding of the diversity of peoples who trekked to the West: Black Cowboys of the Old West by Tricia Martineau Wagner (TwoDot, 2010, and Women of the West by Cathy Luchetti and Carol Olwell (Antelope Island Press, 1982. Both feature photographic evidence of the contribution of African-Americans and women to the move westward.

Runaway slaves as well as free men and women sought their freedom in the West, often helped on their way by Native Americans. There were African-American sheri s, soldiers, mayors and homesteaders playing a role in the settlement of struggling early townships.
