Summary
"From its vantage point on Persimmon Hill in Oklahoma City, the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum commands a rare view of the American West. In half a century it has grown from a Hall of Fame honoring the American cowboy to a world-class institution housing extraordinary collections of art, artifacts, and archival materials." "Although western fine art has long been its primary focus, the museum today collects a broad array of material that reflects the variety of peoples, cultures, and historical currents found in the West. A Western Legacy celebrates the fiftieth anniversary of this premier museum, offering both an institutional history and a captivating pictorial overview representing its extensive holdings." "The book presents for the first time in one volume more than eighty full-page color images of the museum's signature artworks and artifacts, selected for their rarity, superior quality, or historic importance, each accompanied by an interpretive essay." "This volume, which marks the inauguration of The Western Legacies Series, is a testament both to the museum's holdings and to the persistence of western heritage in a new century."--BOOK JACKET
