    Highly Recommended - fascinating part of our history

    Why were these events missing from my American history courses? A great read about British nobility as hunters, tourists and settlers in America in the 19th century. A social history focused on the interaction of the British with Americans and our land that also explains the mansions in the Plains! Some of the British were just here for sport and fun while others came to ranch and farm. Some understood the transitions that were taking place - the forced exodus of the Indians and the decline of the Plains and its native wildlife - as tourists and settlers moved in. They organized records in art, collections and journals of what they saw and experienced. When the British returned to Britain, some hung the paintings in their estates while others shared artifacts and staged live shows in London and other cities. Near the end of the century, America's rising anti-immigration attitudes coincided with some of the British beginning to discover the real challenges of the work they had undertaken in cattle ranching and farming, and many departed. This is a well-organized, entertaining and informative book.
