The West of the Cowboy State (also known as Wyoming) has long been the favoured repository of the East's cultural fantasies, and in the late 19th and 20th centuries, Eastern expectations and demands shaped Wyoming's image in this role. This title shows how the myth of the 'American West' has acted as a force in history and in individual lives.
