The Wild West on 5 bits a day.


The Wild West on 5 bits a day.

Tapper, Joan.

Thames & Hudson


160 pages




Tapper, author of several Southwest travel books, offers late 19th-century era travel advice about where to go, what to do, and where to stay, in the famous Old West, such as the fancy Tabor Hotel in bustling Leadville, CO. There are chapters devoted to must-see sights, famous and infamous people the traveler may meet, and entertainment options like visiting a saloon or gambling parlor. Companion volumes, authored separately, explore ancient Athens, Rome, Florence, and London in this same time traveling fashion. Many photographs and illustrations are included.
