The Hog Ranches of Wyoming: Liquor, Lust, and Lies Under Sagebrush Skies

SKU: 1280
$10.00Price

Frontier "hog ranches" were part saloon, part dance hall, and part brothel. These rip-roaring establishments usually sprung up around forts to provide diversion for the troops, although cowboys and locals were willing to pull up a stool at the bar as well.
Author Larry Brown has gathered the stories of Wyoming's hog ranches from Mother Featherleg's place to the Nine Mile Ranch to the Hog Ranch at Fetterman. The colorful sites were brimming with sin, gunplay, murder, outlaws, and romance.
