The Western Legacies Series is a co-publication series between The National Cowboy and Western Heritage Museum and the University of Oklahoma Press. The series consists of works on Western culture germane to the museum, such as biographies, directories, material-culture monographs, art histories, photo essays, and corporate histories. Some works may be published in conjunction with museum exhibits, but will be designed to exist independently of such exhibits. Each work will incorporate the latest research and insights gleaned from the various fields that delve into the political, sociological, institutional, and cultural aspects of western life. The books are written in a style that appeals to general readers, professional historians, and their students.
