About the Author

Peter Boag is Professor of History at the University of Colorado, Boulder. He is the author of Environment and Experience: Settlement Culture in Nineteenth-Century Oregon (California, 1992).


"An important work, taking Western history in entirely new directions. Peter Boag demonstrates his judiciousness, his care, with an impressive set of largely overlooked and underutilized sources. And those sources reveal remarkable tales. There is verve, an excitement, in both the ordinariness of everyday life and the extraordinary circumstances of scandal. Historians of sexuality in particular will ponder this book's insights for some time to come. It is a provocative study, rich in documentation, and extremely significant in its analytic impact."
