Summary
A quest to figure out why country music suddenly experienced so much popularity in Europe eventually sent me stumbling through numerous posters of Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. As I looked at these poster advertisements and began to place them within historical context, several insights about the role of entertainment and its relation to main currents of thought in the nineteenth century began to emerge. From the start of Buffalo Bill's Wild West production in the 1870s up until its demise in 1910, his posters capitalized on the potent idealism of a western frontier in a way that uniquely captivated contemporary national and international audiences..
