Review

"Thoroughly researched and richly textured, Christensen's vibrant consideration of town building underscores the importance of community in the American West." ANNE M. BUTLER, EDITOR OF WESTERN HISTORICAL QUARTERLY "A splendid book that offers a fresh and imaginative look at the constantly shifting definitions of 'Western' and of one Montana town's often muddled efforts to keep up with the latest in Western fashions. Rich in detail, insightful, and important." DAVID M. EMMONS, AUTHOR OF THE BUTTE IRISH: CLASS AND ETHNICITY IN AN AMERICAN MINING TOWN, 1875-1925

Most Helpful Customer Reviews

7 of 9 people found the following review helpful By William J. O'connor on February 7, 2007
Format: Hardcover
I was born in Red Lodge and graduated from Red Lodge High School in 1960. I learned some facts which I did not know about the early days (1890-1940) of the town. I feel that the author over emphasized the town's officals with respect to throwing out the indians and the cowboys, and then bringing them back into the history for the economic salvation of the area. She should have praised the officials for rescuing a dying coal town, but of course that would not have been what her PhD thesis was trying to prove. I also think that she over emphasized that the Festival of Nations did not include all ethic groups, but only the enthic groups that were represented in the area. What else could they have done? Overall, the history should receive a grade of A, the social science should receive a grade of C+.
