Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "Woods explores the way the American West was exploited by the younger sons of English gentry who were unable to inherit land at home or had been banished for misbehavior. The spawning of the British cowboy is told in terms of business successes and failures as well as cultural clashes and the infamous range wars. A remarkable look at a unique slice of American history. Notes, bibliography; to be indexed. --Denise Perry Donavin"
