Hell on the Range: A Story of Honor, Conscience, and the American West (Book)
Title: Hell on the Range: A Story of Honor, Conscience, and the American West
Author: Daniel Justin Herman
Editor: William J, Cronon
Abstract: In this lively account of Arizona's Rim County War of the 1880's, historian Daniel J. Herman explores a web of conflict involving Mormons, Texas cowboys, New Mexican sheepherders, Jewish merchants, and mixed- blood ranchers. From political intrigues, ambushers, and lynchings, argues Herman, issued a peculiarly Western story of "good men fighting villains." By recounting the story of the war from its social origins to its enshrinement in myth, Herman casts new light on Western violence, Western identity, and American cultural history.
