The Wyoming Lynching of Cattle Kate, 1889

by

The Wyoming Lynching of Cattle Kate, 1889 Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The Lynching of Cattle Kate (Ellen Watson) and Jim Averell by six prominent cattlemen filled the pages of Wyoming newspapers in 1889.<P>The popular myth of the West was that Watson was a prostitute who galloped across the prairies and bartered sex for calves.<P>For years residents of the Sweetwater Valley knew that these stories were not true. They knew that Ellen Watson's biggest crime was legally claiming a homestead on a piece of ground being used as a hay meadow by cattleman Albert Bothwell.<P>Now, for the first time, an author has searched through the layers of fabrication and uncovered the true story.

Description:

Includes bibliographical references (p. 339-347) and index.
