What Does Western Apparel Owe To Buffalo Bill
I wonder how much Buffalo Bill had to do with popularizing western apparel? For those of us who have been raised in the Wesstern US, the idea of Colonel Cody’s Wild West Show seems a bit garish.
Even so, how much different was his show from the modern rodeo? The fact is that people were curious about western culture as presented by the show and were attracted to much of it. Did I answer my own question, or further confuse the issue?
