Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
This is one of the better books I have ever read (mostly text and very few photos/illustrations) about saloons, and saloons in the Rockie Mountains in particular. Lots of great stories, saloon lexicon, who ran saloons and what the saloons were like. The book even covers what it cost to start up a saloon in the 1800s, from the tent saloon with a 2x12 for a bar to the most elegant saloons with paneling, crystal glassware, marble bars, elegant paintings, etc. Also covered are the various types of beverages, how difficult it was to transport them to remote mining camps, the profits one could make in the saloon business..ethnicity of saloon owners and so forth. After reading this book, you will know so much about these old saloons that your daydreams with be very authentic...great source for writers, researchers, students.

I read this library book for a book report in a college class I took on The Westward Expansion, and found it fascinating. The role of the saloon on the frontier is revealed to be much more than just a "watering hole." It's just the right mix of facts and narrative, and as a fan of Old West history, I had to have it for my own library. It came promptly and in excellent condition from Amazon.
