The Wild West

I found a very interesting book today that I thought might help some writers in this community. It's called The Writer's Guide to Everyday Life in the Wild West: From 1840-1900 by Candy Moulton.

The content include three different parts: The Land, Government and War; Everyday Life; and Wild West Society. Each part features chapters with detailed information on specific topics, photographs, and a bibliography at the end of each chapter. At the end of the book is a chronology of the Wild West, a generalized bibliography, and an index for easy searching of terms.

I hope this suggestion is able to help someone with their writing!
