AUTHOR

Elofson, W. M.

SUMMARY

In this book Warren Elofson argues that though they lived on different sides of the forty-ninth parallel, the first cattlemen on the western Canadian prairies and in the state of Montana shared a common history. They both forged societies composed of a considerable number of people drawn from eastern homelands by the visual media. They both started out with immense hope that was soon shattered by the natural and frontier environments. They both were dominated by wealthy cattlemen mainly from the East and a popular cowboy culture suited to the conditions of the frontier but designed in part by romance books, dime novels and Wild West shows disseminated in New York, Chicago, Montreal, Toronto, London and Edinburgh. They also went through a pattern of agricultural development that was eventually to establish the mixed or ranch-farm as the approach most suited to stock raising under north-western conditions. And they helped to prepare the ground for the emergence of populist political approaches in which local women as well as men could demand and attain a prominent place. Elofson describes in vivid detail the power and influence of the so-called "cattle barons" as well as the lives of the ranch hands on the open range and in the saloons and brothels that dotted the streets of the frontier towns.Elofson, W. M. is the author of 'Frontier Cattle Ranching in the Land and Times of Charlie Russell', published 2004 under ISBN 9780773527034 and ISBN 0773527036.
