This book compares the reality of the Old West to how it is portrayed in the escapist entertainment of Western movies: It has the perspective of history rather than traditional analysis or critical commentary. Starting with the early 1900s Western movies, the narrative follows the evolution in look, style, and content as the films matured from short vignettes of good-versus-bad into the modern plots. The book compares the reality of the cowboys, Indians, gunmen, lawmen, and soldiers who peopled the Old West to how they are portrayed (real and fictional) on the silver screen.

About the Author:

Jeremy Agnew is a consultant in the field of biomedical electronics. He has written numerous books on the Old West.

From the Inside Flap:

For many years, movie audiences have carried on a love affair with the American West, believing Westerns are escapist entertainment of the best kind, harkening back to the days of the frontier. This work compares the reality of the Old West to its portrayal in movies, taking an historical approach to its consideration of the cowboys, Indians, gunmen, lawmen and others who populated the Old West in real life and on the silver screen. Starting with the Westerns of the early 1900s, it follows the evolution in look, style, and content as the films matured from short vignettes of good-versus-bad into modern plots.
