Put on your spurs, fill your pockets with gold dust and ammunition, and plan your trip back in time to America's legendary frontier in 1880. The newest book in Thames & Hudson's bestselling 'Time Travel' series shows the reader what it was really like in everybody's favourite film landscape: the American Wild West in the days of Jesse James and Dodge City. Drawing on contemporary newspapers and travel memoirs, Joan Tapper offers advice on the cleanest boarding houses and filthiest saloons, what to eat, what to wear, who to meet - and who to avoid - and how to get out of Dodge in a hurry if you fail to spot the difference. From navigating the new railroads to avoiding calamity when you finally meet Calamity Jane, this entertaining guide belongs in the holster of every time-travelling tourist.
