ABT Time

Apr 27, 2023

In 1987 Patty Limerick changed “the narrative” of the American West with her landmark book, “Legacy of Conquest,” which painted a different portrait of the frontier from the traditional romantic notions of cowboys riding the range.  My brother Eric was so deeply moved by the book that I suggested he conduct this interview, structured around 5 questions that he supplements with quotes from the book.  It’s a great discussion that explores such ABT-related topics as revisionism, stereotypes, and the basic question of accuracy versus a good story.
