Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In this fascinating book Monica Rico explores the myth of the American West in the nineteenth century as a place for men to assert their masculinity by andldquo;roughing itandrdquo; in the wilderness and reveals how this myth played out in a transatlantic context. Rico uncovers the networks of elite menandmdash;British and Americanandmdash;who circulated between the West and the metropoles of London and New York.

Each chapter tells the story of an individual who, by traveling these transatlantic paths, sought to resolve anxieties about class, gender, and empire in an era of profound economic and social transformation. All of the men Rico discussesandmdash;from the well known, including Theodore Roosevelt and Buffalo Bill Cody, to the comparatively obscure, such as English cattle rancher Moreton Frewenandmdash;envisioned the American West as a global space into which redemptive narratives of heroic upper-class masculinity could be written.
