کتاب خارجی The American West

   The American West | In 1781, America’s western frontier was marked by the Appalachian Mountains.

   The earliest pioneer families, establishing themselves in Missouri, Iowa, or Wisconsin, were soon out of reach of stores and supplies. They reliedon homespun and home-dyedgarments and animal skins for warmth. Gradually, the influence of NativeAmerican and Mexican cultures fused with the European immigrants’ clothing styles. The cowboy was born.

   The American West has provedendlessly fascinating to writers, painters, moviemakers, and weekend re-enactors. From a costume point of view, it’s probably the first period for which we have good photographic evidence. In which case, how have movies frequently managed to get it so wrong?

   The answer is partly that, despite that evidence, most painters and writers were working long after the era had ended and they were already romanticizing it. Showmen such as Buffalo Bill brought a lurid version of the West to Europe and left behind some strange misconceptions. These days, fancy dress shops are busy marketing versions of “western” clothing that no cowboy would recognize. These areoftennot only inaccurate but also insulting and demeaning, particularlyto Native Americans and Mexicans. Sothe first rule is,steer clear of anything from those sources.
