Learn about the colorful characters of the West’s past and present in investigative journalist, Ian Neligh’s latest book!

SPURRED WEST: ROGUES, TREASURE SEEKERS, BOUNTY HUNTERS, AND COLORFUL CHARACTERS PAST AND PRESENT

With curiosity driven by remnants of the Old West that litter the landscape, Neligh wanted to know how much of the legends of the time were real and what parts still live on today.

He spent a year searching for answers, interviewing gunslingers, bounty hunters, bare-knuckle boxers, treasure hunters, brand inspectors, and more to compare them to their historic counterparts.

What he discovered is that the spirit of the #WildWest lives on much as it did over a hundred years ago, but sometimes it evolved into something new.

And it is still wild, dangerous, and unpredictable.

Through expert #HistoryChannel-style storytelling, this author introduces readers to fascinating characters of today and yesterday in SPURRED WEST.

Join award-winning authors Barbara J. Atwater and Ethan J. Atwater at the Museum for the first reading of their new book Chia and the Fox Man. Books will be on sale for autographing.

“The Atwaters retell this Alaskan #Denaina teaching story, learned from their great uncle, folding Dena’ina words in where appropriate. Dwyer’s muted but lively use of color and line brings the story to life. Gracefully teaches a critical life lesson.”
